Singer Bettye Lavette is scheduled to perform January 30 at Infinity Hall in Hartford. Hailed by The New York Times as “one of the great soul performers of her generation,” LaVette is a singer who can take any type of song and make it her own.
To quote the late great George Jones, “Bette is truly a singer’s singer.” His career began in 1962, at the age of 16, in Detroit, Michigan. His first single “My Man – He’s a Loving Man”, was released on Atlantic Records. This led to tours with headliners such as Ben E. King, Clyde McPhatter and then newcomer Otis Redding.
