4:00 – 7:00 pm – Jessie Laine Powell, at Talon Winery, Gordon Ln, Shelbyville

Her husky, soul-tinged delivery, and her R&B and Gospel roots run deep. A preacher’s daughter, Jessie grew up with the gospel music of the church. But it was jazz that began to capture her, and before long jazz and R&B had begun to dominate her musical taste. Now Jessie and Creative Soul Jazz embark on a re-imagining of sorts. Getting Jessie back to the serious side of jazz, while still holding true to her Gospel and R&B roots. Creative Soul Jazz is introducing Jessie into the social media world as a jazz vocal force to be reckoned with.

The New York Times called Spotlight a better account of tenacious journalism than All the President’s Men.

Nominated for 6 Academy Awards.  Spotlight stars Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and many more.  Spotlight was also nominated for a SAG  Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.
