Gospel, blues, funk, and soul are transformed by the powerful vocals of this Texan singer who has been compared to Aretha Franklin and Bonnie Raitt. Ruthie Foster grew up in a small town, singing at her community church and immersing herself in gospel, blues, country, and pop. When she was offered a major record deal as a pop star, Foster rejected the offer, preferring instead to pursue her career as a singer-songwriter. Today, she boasts three Grammy nominations and has sung with artists including Bonnie Raitt and the Allman Brothers. Whether sharing original compositions or remaking classics in her own beautiful, boisterous style, Foster’s big voice and triumphant spirit shine through.
