Shemekia Copeland - Words and Music - 2012

The blues is alive and well in the hands and voice of Shemekia Copeland. Hear proof, Tuesday at 9pm on Words & Music.

When your dad is the late Texas bluesman Johnny Copeland, there's no point in running from your destiny with music. So Shemekia Copeland embraced it, and even at 33, she's earned her "Queen of the Blues" stripes. Now Shemekia is back with a mix of covers and originals on the new album 33 1/3, and she stopped by FUV to belt out a few of the songs live.
