Shemekia Copeland




When Shemekia Copeland sings, you can’t help but be captivated. She was first encouraged to sing by her father, the late Texas blues guitar legend, Johnny Clyde Copeland. She would sing onstage with him, but never considered it as a career for herself. It’s hard to see why when you see her literally bring the house down at Wiggins Waterfront Park for WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival.
