1 more album featuring this track. Irma Thomas (b. February 18, 1941, Ponchatoula, Louisiana) whose only national chart hit in a 50 year career is 1963's "Wish Someone Would Care", is an enduring, Grammy winning, soul, gospel, rhythm and blues singer from New Orleans. Known as the "Soul Queen of New Orleans", she is a contemporary of Aretha Franklin and Etta James, but did not tour as relentlessly, and industry support and major commercial success eluded her for decades.
I have heard Irma Thomas all of my life but I never really listened to her. I even think that we attended the same High School at the same time. I have seen her live at small night clubs. Recently I listened to "Can You Hear It In My Tears" by Irma, on the radio. I was deeply moved and shocked to find out that it was an Irma Thomas song. I am now an Irma Thomas fan. How life can change our viewpoint. It seemed like no one had anything but positive things to say about her so I picked up 'True Believer'. Now I'm making everyone I know listen to this CD.
