While only in her early 30s, two-time GRAMMY® nominee

Shemekia Copeland

is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues.

X
She’s opened for the Rolling Stones,
headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world,
scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic(The New York Times and The Times of London),

shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and Eric Clapton, 

and has even performed at the White House for President and Mrs. Obama.
X
Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor,
the singer was presented with Taylor’s crown by her daughter, Cookie,
on June 12, 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival
and given the honor of the new

“Queen of the Blues”

by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.

Shemekia went OFF MIC last night

for several minutes

and her powerful, amazing grace Gospel Church

booming sustaining opera voice

astounded the audience,

and

stunned the windows and bricks of the adjacent buildings

around Mears Park and the Mississippi River!

I experienced her bone/soul shattering voice last year.

She was the opening act.

HA!
