LA-based blues singer Janiva Magness packs quite the vocal wallop.
By way of comparison, she won the 2009 Blues Music Awards B.B. King Entertainer of the Year honor, only the second woman ever to do so (with the great Koko Taylor).

As a youngster, living in foster homes and on the streets after losing both parents to suicide, she found something in the blues and claimed it as her own. She's now nine records into a successful career and touring in support of The Devil is an Angel Too, a tour which stops at the Vonn Jazz Club Sunday, June 27.

The show is sponsored by Blues for a Cure. Tickets are $20. Call (614) 431-JAZZ.
