Joan Belgrave

  
Before returning to Detroit in the late 1970s, vocalist Joan Belgrave established a solid reputation as a vocalist able to handle all types of material – gospel, blues and jazz. There’s no question that working with her husband, trumpet master Marcus, has inspired Joan. Her strongest influence is gospel music from her years singing in choirs, but she projects joy into all of her songs. She’s backed up by some of Detroit's finest musicians on this performance.
