Irma Thomas – Mindset – It’s New Orleans
Over Irma Thomas’s 50 year career she has won a Grammy, released chart topping hits, and collected a few ex-husbands on the way. She is an institution of the city’s music, and is called the Soul Queen of New Orleans.
Dr. Nick sits down with Mrs. Thomas to talk about how she overcame personal and social obstacles to become the success she is today, and why it takes more than a pretty voice to be a success.
Irma talks about to Nick about her childhood, her rise to fame, and her unique perspective on fame and success. Irma’s mix of dedication, self-reliance, and the ability to laugh at herself has made her a singer that continues to stay relevant in her city.
