Sing to Me Bettye

Happy Friday! I hope you all have a nice weekend planned. There is talk of above freezing temperatures in New York so yippee! Break out the flip-flops.

During the pre-inauguration celebrations my DH and I noticed for the first time this woman, Bettye LaVette singing with Jon BonJovi. We were wowed by her voice so I looked her up and got some of her music from the library. I came to find out that she has been singing for over 40 years. Talk about being late to the party. I am so loving Bettye. I can hear so many stories in her voice. Check her out then and now. I particularly like the middle song. You never really know who you're sitting next to.
You can find out more about Bettye here. Enjoy.

Great "find". It is amazing how much talent is out there that isn't discovered by the masses...yet (like you!)

Thank you for sharing!

Nice post! - When we were at the concert - in the freezing cold people around us were asking who she was - but everyone agreed that her voice was wonderful :o)
