Bessie Smith Biography

The original tough-mama prototype for nearly every female blues singer to come, hard-living, big-voiced Artist was also the first blues singer with a mega-hit recording career, achieved in part via collaborations with some of the most notable musicians of her era. In her prime in the 1920s and 1930s, she was the highest-paid black entertainer in the U.S., and her influence persists to this day.
