From humble beginnings in North Carolina, Ila Vann started singing at the age of five. She rubbed shoulders with many legendary gospel stars and even toured with Mahalia Jackson. She eventually made her way to New York to fulfill her dream of singing rhythm and blues. A chance meeting with Sam Cooke led to a career that's spanned over fifty years and two countries.


Ila now tells her story in this inspiring memoir. She’s still performing and has received newfound recognition in England. Her life has been full of many incredible highs and heartbreaking lows. This is the story of a survivor who refused to give up.

Looking forward to getting a copy and reading this! Such a long career and still going strong and doing regular gigs!


Hopefully her autobiography will help give her some of the recognition and respect she's still missing. Ila has a Facebook page here, by the way...
