“SOULFUL SUNDAY WITH RUTHIE FOSTER”

Ruthie Foster

Born in Gause, Texas, Foster grew up singing in her hometown choir and surrounded by her parents’ gospel music. Joining the Navy to experience the world led her to sing in their Pride band, which performs across the southeastern US at various recruiting events. After discharging from the Navy, she continued to expand her career in New York City. There she caught the eye of Atlantic records and was offered a pop music record. Foster was more interested in exploring American roots music such as folk and blues and decided against the deal.

Foster returned to Texas when her mother fell ill and began to perform in College Station. Following her mother’s death in 1996, Foster partnered with Blue Corn Music to produce her first of many albums, Full Circle. Foster’s acclaim grew with each album. She went on to win several Blues Music and Living Blues Awards and was nominated for several Grammies. In addition to her albums she has recorded two live shows, which she dubs “hallelujah time.” Read More
