The Sweetest HallelujahBook - 2013
Betty Jewel Hughes was once the most famous black jazz singer in all of Memphis. Folks would travel miles just to see her light up the stage with her husband, the legendary trumpeter Saint Hughes. But when the Saint is arrested for drugs and Betty Jewel finds herself pregnant, she gives up the dream of being a star to raise her beautiful daughter Billie in Shakerag, Mississippi. Now, ten years later, Betty Jewel is fighting cancer and searching for someone to care for Billie when she's gone. Desperate and out of options, she takes out a newspaper ad seeking a loving mother.
