Shemekia Copeland's 'Soul Truth'

Shemekia Copeland is a young, multi award-winning blues singer who has just released her fourth album, The Soul Truth. Critics have fawned over her stunning vocals, which burst with energy and passion.

While much is traditional about Copeland's music, it is unique for favoring stories of female strength over songs about a woman's failures. That's just one of the reasons fans are flocking to Copeland, who made a splash when she entered the national scene in 1997, when she was just 18.
