Miss Rhythm by Ruth BrownBefore Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Tina Turner, there was Ruth Brown, the legendary rhythm and blues singer best known for her hits (Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean, Teardrops from My Eyes, and 5-10-15 Hours. Her powerhouse voice and sassy squeal brought worldwide success to the Atlantic label in the 1950s. But it took a decades-long battle with Atlantic to receive her full royalties, which inspired the creation of the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.In Miss Rhythm, the singer shares candid recollections: the early days of R&B; the racism she endured on the road; and her abusive husbands and lovers. In the 80s and 90s, Brown earned a Tony and Grammy Award and a role as Motormouth Maybelle in John Waters cult film Hairspray. Miss Rhythm is a story of trial and triumph, and of chart-topping success despite seemingly impossible odds.
