Bettye LaVette 

When: Sat., Jan. 29, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $24-26

As Bettye LaVette neared and passed the age of 60, the Motown native finally found the well-deserved fame that long eluded her. She followed her Joe Henry-produced 2006 breakout, I've Got My Own Hell To Raise, with a Grammy-nominated collaboration with Drive-By Truckers, a show-stopping rendition of "Love, Reign O'er Me" at the Kennedy Center Honors and a duet with Jon Bon Jovi at Barack Obama's inaugural celebration. Despite LaVette's prowess in all manner of soul singing, she can't be confined to a single genre, wringing every bit of emotion from her glorious, compelling pipes on swampy R&B nuggets and transcendent readings from the rock songbook. —Spencer Griffith
