Claudette King- "The Bluz Queen"-BB King's Youngest Daughter
Claudette King, dubbed "The Bluz Queen" is the youngest daughter of THEE Ultimate Blues Master, B. B. King and, if familial genes count for anything, she is "On to something."
The former San Francisco Bay Area native now living in Atlanta, has had the life experiences to make lyrics mean something. She has a natural ease in shifting with the mood of each lyric. But most certainly, the power of Claudette's enthusiasm for the splendid genre-blending music on her debut "We're Onto Something" merits wide notice.
"Is it the root of everything all other genres it isn't Rhythm & Blues, it is the Rhythm in the Blues."
Claudette King can be described as dynamic, amplified and down right sassy. She exudes a confidence that perhaps was born of her struggle to prove who she is and at the same time carve out her own identity.
As the daughter of the all time Blues icon B.B. King, she grew up attending church and had a "normal" everyday life which included attending public school and seemed far removed from the star-studded world of her father.
Her life was so normal that her classmates did not believe she was the daughter of B.B. King.
"There was a high burden of proof for me to convince my classmates," says King.
