Event Details

‘The Goddess of Soul” the fantastic Martha High shines a light on her new solo album “Singing For The Good Times” with two exclusive LJF 2017 shows at Hideaway. Martha High, who sang on stage with James Brown for 30 years and was his longest-running female vocalist, is stepping back into the spotlight for a new solo album.
Martha High ‘Singing For The Good Times’ was released in Spring 2016 on Blind Faith Records and is a welcome solo flight for High, now 71, who tours the world regularly as the lead singer with the band of Maceo Parker, another longtime acolyte of the Godfather of Soul.

High’s credentials as one of Brown’s most trusted allies, and as part of his historic contribution to the history of soul music are unimpeachable. She was with him and the JBs at their celebrated concert at the Boston Garden in April 1968 on the night after Martin Luther King’s assassination, when Brown prevented further rioting with his sheer stage presence and positive message.

Martha was also by JB’s side at such famous occasions as his courageous trip to Vietnam to entertain the American troops, and at the Rumble In The Jungle concert in Zaire, attended by 60,000 people, ahead of the George Foreman/Muhammad Ali fight of the same name in Kinshasa.
