“She can sing it all”

There is one thing that is particularly difficult when writing about Shemekia Copeland: It is not to use superlatives in each sentence, because the diva is so unique. From blues rock to gospel, from soul to funk or folk music, Shemekia —whom we don’t need to present as the daughter of late Johnny Copeland as she really managed to make herself a first name— can sing it all, and with talent too.

By Fred Delforge, in French webzine Zicazic.
