Remember Love On Christmas Day

by Thornetta Davis

"Remember Love On Christmas Day" I wasn't planning on recording a Christmas cd when the song came to me in Oct of 2008. I was watching TV, nothing but bad news was on and then the first verse of the song just popped in my head. I had to record it.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
T H O R N E T T A D A V I S
DETROIT BLUES SOCIETY LIVING LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
RECIPIENT 
Singer, Songwriter, Recording Artist
SAG and AFTRA Member 

For over fifteen years this multi-talented native Detroiter has graced and dominated Michigan's most attended events. She has performed over two hundred shows a year with grace and stamina. Her voice is strong, commanding, melodic and smooth. She tells her stories with incredible delivery and leaves her audiences wanting more. 
 
She first gained attention in 1987 when she became back up singer for the Detroit soul band "Lamont Zodiac and The Love Signs". Shortly after, the lead singer left the band and the name changed to "The Chisel Brothers featuring Thornetta Davis".  In 1996 Thornetta recorded her first solo album "Sunday Morning Music" with former members of Detroit Rock band Big Chief on the Seattle based label "Sub Pop" which received a rave revue in the national Entertainment Weekly magazine. The song "Cry" from that album was featured on the HBO hit cable drama "The Sopranos". 
 
Thornetta has opened for legendary blues and R&B greats such as B.B. King, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Johnnie Johnson, Betty LaVette, Keb Mo', and Ray Charles requested Thornetta as the opening act for his last performance at Detroit's Music Hall.
Her history is extensive and her performances are memorable…like the time she opened for Bonnie Raitt at Michigan's Ann Arbor Blues & Jazz festival in 1992. Bonnie asked Thornetta to join her and Katie Webster (queen of the swamp boogie) for an encore song which received a standing ovation.  
In 1999 Thornetta brought down the house with her astounding performance at the "Lillith Fair" at Michigan's Pine Knob Music Theatre hosted by Sarah McLachlan…that same evening she attended the "Detroit Music Awards" where she proudly accepted 2 of the over 25 Music Awards that she has won over the last 20 years for "Best R&B/ Blues vocalist" and "Best R&B Group". 
 
In 2000 Thornetta opened the VH1 Vogue fashion awards at Madison Square Garden with Detroit phenomenon Kid Rock. New York's star-studded event captured Detroit's "Princess of the Blues" in all her glory! 
 
  In 2001 Thornetta Davis is inducted into the Detroit Music Hall of Fame! Thornetta performed on Wednesday nights for 7 years at one of Detroit's favorite live music venues "The Music Menu" located in Greektown in downtown Detroit until it's closing in 2003. Three years before that final Wednesday, Thornetta recorded a live performance on one magical night at the "Menu" and called it "Thornetta Davis covered Live at the Music Menu". This CD is a collection of Thornetta's most requested cover tunes. The magic comes through and touches you and makes you feel like you're right there watching her as she takes you on a spiritual journey to the depths of her soul. 
 "Thornetta Davis covered Live at the Music Menu" won "Best R&B/ Blues Recording" at the Detroit Music Awards 2002.

In 2006 Detroit's "Princess of the Blues" appeared again with Kid Rock during the Super Bowl week on "Jimmie Kimmel Live". In 2007 Thornetta performed with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and took a bit out of the "Big Apple" on "The View" and "The David Letterman Show". Thornetta has electrified audiences world wide with tours to Italy, Blues festivals in Tunisia North Africa, Lucerne Switzerland, Sweden, Paris France, Ottawa Canada, Nottoden Norway and the Chicago Blues Festival to name a few.
