“Rita Coolidge is the stuff of legend and her career the envy of every artist that dreams of success and longevity and she remains today one of rock and pop’s most admired singers.”
In many spiritual and emotional ways that reflect the deep and ever-present importance of family, Rita Coolidge—the two time Grammy Award winning singer—is celebrating a musical holiday celebration she’s been working on all her life.
Rita Coolidge, from her start as a backing vocalist, has come into her own and has never looked back. Once she relocated from Memphis to Los Angeles, her career took off. She was the first call background singer for stars like Ray Charles, The Temptations and many more. She joined Delaney and Bonnie’s band which eventually led to her solo career and her destination of stardom.
In the summer of 1969 she was given the name “Delta Lady” by Joe Cocker and Leon Russell. Eventually Russell wrote a song of the same name in her honor and it has become iconic. She toured for a bit with Cocker and Russell on the “Mad Dogs and Englishmen” tour, and when the tour ended, Rita signed a solo recording deal with A&M Records.
During her two decades with A&M she recorded 15 albums and had numerous hit songs, such as “(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher,” “Superstar,” “We’re All Alone” and “The Way You Do The Things You Do.” During the 70’s, Rita’s musical career expanded to add film and television. She married Kris Kristofferson and together the duo won two Grammy Awards and recorded three hit albums. Rita appeared with Kris and Barbra Streisand in “A Star Is Born.” She has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and on such prime time television shows as Saturday Night Live, The Flip Wilson Show, The Dean Martin Show and The Captain and Tennille Show. Being a proud member of the Cherokee Nation, her fondest awards are her Native American Music Awards and her Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Native American Music Association and First Americans in The Arts. “Rita Coolidge is the stuff of legend and her career the envy of every artist that dreams of success and longevity and she remains today one of rock and pop’s most admired singers.”
