Program Description

In 1961, as a teenager, Bettye LaVette recorded her first hit. But despite her initial success she spent four decades waiting for her moment in the spotlight. Now in her 60s, she has been crowned the "Comeback Queen" and is sharing the stage with megastars like Jon Bon Jovi (at Obama’s Inaugural Concert) and Paul McCartney. In this interview with Maria Hinojosa, “the great lady of soul” talks about her initial success and years of obscurity, the secret of her voice, and why age is not an issue.
