Catchy Tune: Free Tick­ets to Bet­tye LaVette on Dec. 13 at City Win­ery

The 72-year-old Grammy nom­i­nee is no mere singer. She is not a song­writer, nor is she a “cover” artist. She is an in­ter­preter of the high­est or­der. Her gift is be­ing able to take a song from any genre and make it her own. “Raw. Gritty. Gut wrench­ing…one of R&B’s best-kept se­crets.” (Bill­board) “LaVette’s nu­anced singing evokes prime Tina Turner with even more com­mand.” (Rolling Stone) See de­tails at wash­ing­ton­post.com/post­points, Events & Con­tests.
