We knew it would be just a matter of time before Detroit’s own Queen of the Blues, Thornetta Davis-Anderson, became international. After getting eight Detroit Music Awards last year, she gave a stellar performance a couple weeks ago at globalFEST in New York, topped only by receiving the Acadamie du Jazz Award in Paris for her album, “Honest Woman.” “The whole trip was a dream come true,” Thornetta says. “My husband, James, and I visited the street corner in Paris where he proposed in 2005.” She was also thrilled that jazz bass virtuoso Christian McBride accompanied her during her performance in Paris at the award show.
