Bettye LaVette - Stories from Segregation 'til Present - Live at Joe's Pub NYC

Bettye LaVette is a woman who, to me, is as real of a deal as it gets. When she sings a song, I believe it. She always sends tingles my spine, for I know she's lived it and her soulful voice is right on it. Having lived through the segregation era herself and having performed at President Obama's inauguration, she has stories to tell, such as recalling her friend Sam Cooke just before she performs his song in this next video. Enjoy! GC
