"Blues That Lift Your Spirit"
Ms. Davis's trademark is to sing blues that "raise you up," while recognizing the historical foundation of the genre comes from "blood, sweat and a whole lot of tears."
Who is Thornetta Davis?
Born and educated in Detroit, Ms. Davis hit the music scene at the age of 15. . .singing with a group called Jas. In 1983, Jas disbanded but that did not stop Thornetta. Garnering a couple of high schools friends, a singing group entitled Chanteuse was born. Chanteuse continued until 1991 when Davis landed a solo contract with Sub Pop Label. Success was certainly courting her! In 1994, a solo album entitled "Sunday Morning Music" was released. Stardom has begun to knock on her door!
Mingling with the Stars
From 1997 to 2003, Thornetta sang background vocals for Kid Rock. She appeared on albums Devil Without a Cause, Kid Rock and a single titled Wasting Time. Opening for musicians Ray Charles, Bonnie Raitt and Gladys Knight certainly caused the "success lights" to shine on her. How bright is that light today?
