Internationally known recording artist, and award-winning singer and songwriter “Emyna The Rock Queen” and her Legacy of a Rock Queen, A Musical Journey through the History of Female Rock Singers, takes her audience on an unique musical journey.
Emyna’s great respect for these artists inspired her to create a performance, through her “rock music with a purpose” presentation, that gives audiences a portal through which to enjoy not only the music of these performers but also a view into the personal lives of these musical giants. Each portrayal highlights not only the unique talents of these powerful artists but their great struggles, perseverance, generosity, and even idiosyncrasies. Emyna captures it all in her musical presentation.
She portrays, among others:
Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton. What do Elvis Presley and “Big Mama” Thornton have in common?
“Empress of the Blues,” Bessie Smith who was born in 1894 in Chattanooga, TN. She was the most popular and successful female blues singer in the 1920’s and 1930’s. However, being among the highest paid among black artists of the era did not shield her from the indignities of the time.
Memphis Minnie, an independent woman who found success in the tough times of the early 1920’s until her retirement in the mid-50’s. Did you know that the U.K.’s Led Zeppelin covered one of her songs, “When the Levee Breaks,” for their multiplatinum fourth album?
