Best Local Vocalist 

Bernardine Mitchell

If Atlanta has ever had a true diva, it's Bernardine Mitchell. As the city's most authentic interpreter of the American popular song, she's reigned as the undisputed queen of the torch, jazz and blues idiom for decades. And in a town where professional musicians are employed only slightly more steadily than yak drivers, she's kept busy performing in nightclubs, cabarets and theaters, without ever compromising her artistic integrity. She's the missing link to another era of greatness, a direct musical descendant of another class act -- Bessie Smith.
