    Bessie Smith (April 15, 1894 – September 26, 1937) was an American blues singer.

    Sometimes referred to as "The Empress of the Blues," Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s.[1] She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and, along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists.
