Check in with us daily to see Suite903 artists take over TV. Today we’re watching Bettye LaVette perform “Salt of the Earth” on The Late Show with David Letterman.
Normally we pour out a little bit of drink for those who have left the earth. Bettye LaVette the lady who sang Sam Cooke’s “A Change is Gonna Come” with Jon Bon Jovi at the 2009 inauguration celebration encourages to drink up when paying tribute. “Salt of the Earth” from her new album Interpretations: The British Rock Songbook was a somber ode to soldiers overseas. Salute, toast, cheers, responsibly of course.
