This is the moment - the record, the book, the culmination of a lifetime of near-triumphs. This is Bettye LaVette's triumphant year, her 50th in show business.
"Miss LaVette now rivals Aretha Franklin as this generation's most vital soul singer," proclaims the New York Times.
With a voice as powerful as Etta James and a story as compelling as Tina Turner, LaVette is finally embracing the superstar status that has eluded her since the sixties. Justice has been served. Her time has come.
Two major creative endeavors - a brilliantly reflective album, Thankful N' Thoughtful, and a riveting autobiography, A Woman Like Me - will be released this fall. Together, they present Bettye at the top of her form, an artist with the unflinching courage to confront her past while reshaping her future.
