Synopsis

Album Description
The daughter of a thirteen-year-old who'd been raped, Ethel Waters was brought up in poverty in a Philadelphia slum by her Grandmother and was herself married for the first time by the time she was twelve. To support herself, she took on domestic work and, moving to New York, began working in a Harlem club "Edmond's Cellar" in 1919. She was soon recording and toured with Fletcher Henderson.
