Shemekia Copeland: Wicked

Shemekia Copeland sings from the heart with a rare passion and a fiery voice that’s prompted critics to call her a ‘diva-in-the-making.’ But behind the big voice is a down-to-earth young woman who pens songs about the way she worried about her brother while growing up in Harlem, and her dislike of egotistical people. ‘Wicked’, her second album, reveals a major new artist coming into her own with unusual style and grace.
