Tracy Chapman

One of America’s premier poets.  Tracy Chapman has never gotten a great following in the Black community.  In spite of this, she continues to play her brand of what I’ll call folk music knowing that my description is terribly inaccurate.  Her voice can be described as interesting and knowledgeable a little reminiscent of Billy Holiday.  If there are superstars that deserve more of our attention I would say that Tracy Chapman is one of them.
