Instagram photo by mzwrightno #BessieSmith (1894-1937) was a famed American jazz and blues vocalist. A child whose mother and father both died at an early age, Smith began her career as a street singer accompanied by one of her younger brothers on guitar. She transitioned to performing as a dancer in various minstrel shows, eventually meeting #MaRainey , another legendary black female performer, who would take Smith under her wing. She spent the ensuing decade touring theaters on the vaudeville circuit, eventually catching the attention of a rep from Columbia Records who quickly furnished a contract. Smith's rich, soulful voice propelled a successful, if brief, recording career and led her to tour extensively. Her "Downhearted Blues" for example, became wildly popular, selling approx. 800,000 copies (an especially impressive feat for the time). She would go on to work with an array of renowned jazz performers such as saxophonist #SidneyBechet and the unparalleled jazz trumpeter, singer, and composer #LouisArmstrong . Smith's deep influence on blues and jazz has impacted innumerable other musicians and vocalists, including influential artists in their own right such as #BillieHolliday , #JanisJoplin , and #ArethaFranklin . Her remarkable legacy has been summed up in her honorary title, the "Empress of the Blues." #blackwomenshistorymonth #internationalwomenshistorymonth #womenshistorymonth #womenshistory #womensherstorymonth #womensherstory #blackwomensherstorymonth #blackherstorymonth #blackherstory #herstory #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #blackwomen #blackfuturesmonth #blackfutures #black #women #history #blacklivesmatter #100daysofaction #100daysofresistance #resist
