rita coolidge     Coolidge won two Grammy® Awards. Her song styling crosses three different musical genres: rock, pop and jazz. Her bloodlines cross two different ethnicities. Diversity is her middle name. Making great music with a giant, inbred talent is her game.

     “We have a relationship with music,” Rita said, “and it represents our relationship with ourselves and with other people. The importance of family is intertwined with our spiritual path. In my nation, the Cherokee nation, women are revered as they age. I am in the middle of the process, and I’m trying to embrace it with grace and dignity. I am making a conscious effort to give back everything I’ve learned.”
