Bessie Smith (1894-1937) was an influential American blues singer, often dubbed the “Empress of the Blues”. Her powerful, soulful voice and emotive performances captivated audiences, making her one of the leading figures in 1920s blues music. Smith’s recordings, notably “Downhearted Blues,” significantly contributed to the popularity of the genre. Despite her early passing, Smith’s dramatic renditions of the blues deeply influenced future generations of vocalists, cementing her legacy in American music history.
