No blues singer can escape the influence of Bessie Smith, "The Empress of the Blues." For over 100 years, this legendary singer has been and continues to be a major influence on singers and instrumentalists of today. She was larger than life, inexhaustibly creative, and undeniably distinctive. Her legacies of songs speak to everybody; she gave the music its raw, regal poignancy--and marketability.
