Zora Young

Zora Young (born January 21, 1948, West Point, Mississippi) is an American blues singer. She is a distant relative of Howlin' Wolf.
Young's family moved to Chicago at age seven and sang gospel at the Greater Harvest Baptist Church. As an adult she began singing blues and R&B music, and over the course of her career played with Junior Wells, Jimmy Dawkins, Bobby Rush, Buddy Guy, Albert King, Professor Eddie Lusk, and B. B. King. Among those she has collaborated with on record are Willie Dixon, Sunnyland Slim, Mississippi Heat, Paul DeLay, and Maurice John Vaughan.
Teamed with Bonnie Lee and Big Time Sarah on Blues with the Girls, she toured Europe in 1982 and recorded an album in Paris, France. She later played the role of Bessie Smith in the show, The Heart of the Blues. In 1991 she recorded Travelin' Light with the Canadian guitarist, Colin Linden.
Young has toured Europe more than thirty times, in addition to appearances in Turkey and Taiwan. She was the featured performer at the Chicago Blues Festival three times.
