Bettye LaVette

Live at Benaroya Hall >

Bettye LaVette is no mere singer. She is an interpreter of the highest order. Whether the song originated as country, rock, pop or blues, it is pure R&B when she gets through with it. She gets inside a song and shapes and twists it to convey all of the emotion that can be wrought from the lyric. Her career began at the tender age of 16, recording for labels like Atlantic, Epic and Motown from the 1960s through the 1980s. Her very first single, "My Man — He's a Lovin' Man" became a Top Ten R&B hit. Now, with 50+ years of show business under her belt, she is as busy as ever. She has garnered three Grammy nominations with her latest recordings and has released her autobiography, A Woman Like Me.
