Bette Smith always wanted to be a singer but her dad – a church choir director – disapproved of singing secular music. After Bette’s dad died, she really decided to pursue her dreams. Bette found a fan in Ray Charles, and then Jimbo Mathus of Squirrel Nut Zippers produced her debut. Bette brings a 7-piece band to the next World Café.

Catch World Cafe weeknights from 6-8 p.m. on WNRN.
