Kathleen Emery Biography
Kathleen Emery is the recording artist of a 1970 rendering of the public domain African-American spiritual "Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child". Emery's version incorporates fuzz guitar, a funky hip-hop style beat, string orchestra and brass. The song was only released as a 7 inch single on Jazzman records, which is now a collectors item. On March 27, 1971 "Billboard" magazine announced: "Kathleen Emery will cut her first album for Love Records". However, Emery apparently has no other released repertoire, although may have other recordings under other names.
