A Most Astonishing & Compelling Voice and Woman...
Michael G. Jameson | Dallas, Texas United States | 12/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This woman has LIVED and you can hear every moment of it in her beautiful, soulful, blues-filled voice. From being the opening act for Little Richard in her youth to her triumphant starring turns on Broadway, Ms. Hopkins is one of the best known yet oddly obscure STARS ever to brighten our lives. I saw her in concert only once and the experience will live in my heart forever. She was appearing in a trés trendy hotel nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia, back in the early 80s. Taking the stage in a show-stopping gown but also barefoot, she belted out standard after beloved standard, including a raucous version of "Give Me a Pigfoot and a Bottle of Beer." Shoring up my courage, my "partner" and I approached Ms. Hopkins after the show and invited her to dinner. She accepted! We had a great evening and I felt SO honored. While I was a fan before that show, I became a LIFELONG diehard fan following our prolonged and personal meeting, as she explained her approach to singing and music. If you have never heard her sing, THIS IS YOUR STERLING OPPORTUNITY! Order this album and you will thank me for YEARS of happy listening."
Excellent vocal album, really belts out the songs

"She has a powerful voice and have loved her singing for many many years"
Linda Hopkins sings fromher heart
Roger L. Vandermeer | Garden Grove, CA United States | 08/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have followed Linda Hopkins in Southern California for many years. Her one woman show of 'Bessie and me" at the Mark Taper Foum in Los Angeles and her Long Play Album from the show is a show stopper. I love the way she sings the blues and the gospel. I am fortunate to live in Southen California where she lives to be able to attend her concerts, both secular and relegious in clubs and churchs. She has a voice that can deliver the message, whether blues, or gospel. Linda sings from her heart. Obiously, she has known pain and the joy of knowing the Lord."
