GJK Promotions proudly presents Bettye LaVette from Detroit, Michigan as Artist of the Day.
Bettye plays soul, r&b and rock music. Bettye's band consists of; Alan Hill - Music Director - keyboards and vocals, Darryl Pierce - Drums, Brett Lucas - guitar and vocals, Chuck Bartel - bass and vocals.
Bettye is classified "The Great Lady of Soul" for a reason. The Bettye LaVette website http://www.bettyelavette.com/ has a discography of 17 albums and cd's since 1982 and 37 singles released and unreleased. Bettye recorded her first single in 1962 "My Man - He's a Loving Man" which eventually was covered by Tina Turner and Ann Pebbles. Her lastest cd "The Scene of the Crime" is an inspiration to her career. It portrays her amazing journey throughout the years. To find out the true "Bettye LaVette", I suggest that you explore this website from head to toe. The audio clips on most pages, make it feel like you are right there talking with her.
