Exceprts from her website 

"LaVette is one of the very few soul singers who did not get her start singing in the church. Discovered at the age of 16 by the legendary Motor City music raconteur Johnnie Mae Mathews, LaVette’s first single was the insouciantly swinging “ MY Man – He’s a loving man” “A woman like me” helped Bettye win the coveted W.C. Handy Award in 2004 for “Comeback Blues Album of the year” as well as the Living Blues Critics pick as “Best Female Blues Artist of 2004.” 

"To quote MS. LAVette “ And still I Rise. “ Long may it continue."
