Who is Bettye LaVette? - She is someone you believe, when she sings the blues.

For those who many ask the question, who is Bettye LaVette? The best answer might be that she is someone you believe when she sings the blues.

Just below is low-fi video of Bettye's performance at the inauguration of President Obama. This youtube video does not do her justice compared to the way she looked and sounded on a digital feed with super nice studio monitors warming our ears. We are looking for a more souped up copy of this performance if anyone has one!

While Jon Bon Jovi sounded as contrived as a cruise ship singer in search of his pinkie ring, Bettye gave it more meaning and seriously laid it down, for real, on this most historic day. Enjoy! GC
