BB KING'S DAUGHTER PLAYS TRIBUTE TO FATHER AT
CENTENNIAL PARK MEMORIAL DAY BLUES CONCERT
Claudette "Bluz Queen" King Celebrates Fathers Legacy at Free Blues Concert
Claudette King, the youngest daughter of the late all-time legendary Bluesman, B. B. King, is the featured artist at the Memorial Day Concert, Centennial Park bandshell, 2500 West End Avenue in Nashville. Opening acts begin at 10:00 AM Monday, May 25, 2015. Concert is free and open to the public.
Yes, there’s a new voice making waves, belting out melodies of Blues, Soul, and R&B and Claudette is quick to cite her father as her main “inspiration." Now living in Atlanta, she was trained in the gospel of the Baptist church from age 13. She has developed some of the emotional authority that one associates with her mighty mentors: Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Koko Taylor, Chaka Khan, Mavis Staples, Mahalia Jackson, even Michael Jackson. The affable singer will tell you: “I got a bit of everybody inside of me.”
