Soul Purpose is thrilled to share their eclectic mix of swing, soul, R&B and jazz as the opening act for the outstanding Ms. Copeland.

While only in her early 30s, three-time GRAMMY® nominee Shemekia Copeland is the reigning "Queen of the Blues" and a force to be reckoned with. Her second album, Wicked, released in 2000, scored three Handy Awards (Song of the Year, Blues Album of the Year, Contemporary Female Artist of the Year) and a GRAMMY® nomination. Her recording, 33 1/3 , received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Blues Album. She is currently touring in support of her latest Grammy-nominated album, Outskirts Of Love.
