Godmother of Jazz

1jcdivaIn 1995, a musician referred to her as a diva. She liked that. She felt it. By 1998, she accepted the title Diva JC and the rest is herstory. Doctoral Candidate Joan Cartwright has been on stage for decades. She loves to sing and her audiences have been innumerable.

On March 7, 2015, a dear friend and fellow author Mirthell Bayliss Bazemore referred to the Diva as The Godmother of Jazz.

It fit. It felt good, so Joan Cartwright decided that this is her story and she’s sticking to it! www.drdivajc.com.
