There’s interesting story behind singer Tamara Bertrand’s stage moniker Queen Bee. The Haiti-born and based singer earned the name “La Reine”—The Queen—from her father and teachers for her turbulent and rebellious ways. When she started singing professionally in the mid-2000s, she thought the name would be quite fitting for career purposes. At first, the singer says, she just named herself Queen. She added the “Bee” part much later, from the French word “abeille” meaning, well, “bee”, because she says she’s very bossy and she commands the field like a queen or a bee. While she can be quite docile, she can sting like a bee when the moment and situation calls for it.
Haiti’s Queen Bee has a soulful soprano. Her voice has threads of the singer Tifane. It’s truly perfect for jazz-world ballads. (Kreyolicious.com)
