As a teenager in Detroit, Bettye LaVette scored a hit single with 'My Man - He's a Lovin' Man'. But by 20, she had faded into obscurity, and bad luck repeatedly sabotaged her career. Then, after 40 years of singing in clubs, her unforgettable performances at the 2008 Kennedy Center Honors and at President Obama's pre-inaugural concert put her back in the spotlight. A chronicle of LaVette's incredible life, 'A Woman Like Me' is a poignant, brazen, take-no-prisoners memoir as thrilling and fearless as her music.
