Shirley King

The daughter of the legendary B.B. King, vocalist Shirley King carried on the family tradition to become a favorite among Chicago's North Side blues club denizens. Born September 26, 1949 in West Memphis, Arkansas, she pursued a career as an exotic dancer before turning to the blues in 1991; a year later she and harpist Chicago Beau recorded her debut LP, Jump Through My Keyhole, a showcase for her husky wail. ~ Jason Ankeny
