The Empress of Blues
All About Elizabeth ¨Bessie¨ Smith
Slowing to a Stop
Bessie Smith had a off-and-on marriage life and a problem with alcohol. Her personal life soon got mixed up with her business life, and her performing slowed down. She still signed record deals, but she died from a car crash before she could record her last album.

But, it wasn't just the women population she wowed. Everyone loved Bessie. She was even put on postage stamps!
