Rita Coolidge, best known as the “Delta Lady” as penned by Leon Russell and for her Cherokee Native American ancestry, had great success on the pop charts with four consecutive top 25 hits. Her repertoire includes remakes of Jackie Wilson's "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher," Boz Scaggs' "We're All Alone," and The Temptations' "The Way You Do The Things You Do," fand "You." She was married to Kris Kristofferson in 1973, but they split 7 years later. She continues to record and tour.  Look for her a new Christmas CD in the fall of 2012.
