I love the powerful, soulful, rockin' voice of Bettye LaVette. If you haven't checked her out, do so... she is smokin's hot!
I'll start with an autobiographical tune from her most recent CD, "Before the Money Came":
This is a great live cut, with LaVette doing "Sleep to Dream" & "I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got":
And here she is doing "Joy" and "Let Me Down Easy":
