BPL@Night Presents An Evening of Jazz with Roszetta Johnson
A native of Tuscaloosa, AL, and a singing wonder in the 1960s and 1970s, Roszetta Johnson returned to Alabama after a successful career to pursue the dream of a college degree. Ms. Johnson taught at Ramsey High School in Birmingham and after retiring she has once again returned to her first love–singing. The Birmingham Public Library is proud to announce a special performance in the atrium of the downtown library where Roszetta Johnson will perform a free concert at 6:30 p.m, February 21, 2008.
Inducted into both the Alabama Music Hall of Fame and the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in the early 1980s, Ms. Johnson led a successful recording and performing career. She recently won an award from the Birmingham Art Music Alliance for Best Female Vocalist.
Fans from around the world have enjoyed Roszetta Johnson’s music, from Vancouver to South Africa to Japan, and fans will be happy to learn that she will release a new CD in June of this year.
Her reemergence into the performance world is a treat for everyone and the Birmingham Public Library is thrilled to host her. BPL@Night’s “An Evening of Jazz” will be an evening to remember.
