THE EMPRESS OF BLUES

the empress of blues

Queen Latifah stars as legendary blues singer Bessie Smith in the HBO Films drama “Bessie” airing tomorrow night. The film focuses on the late singer’s transformation from a struggling young singer into “The Empress of Blues”—one of the most successful recording artists of the 1920s and an enduring icon today. So how did Queen Latifah try to balance her own vocal style with that of the woman she portrays? “I tried to draw on her style in different ways…Bessie’s style was unlike anyone else’s,” says Queen Latifah. “She was a real powerhouse and had a lot of grit in her voice. You could hear when she was partying really hard and when she wasn’t. I just tried to find enough similarities of what she does in my own voice.” Catch the film’s debut on HBO on Saturday (May 16th) 8PM ET/PT.
