"Shemekia Copeland is a powerhouse, a superstar…she can do no wrong." - Rolling Stone "Shemekia Copeland is one of the great blues voices of our time. No one comes close to the sheer firepower that Copeland conjures at will."
- Chicago Tribune "America's Child is a groundbreaking, genre-bending work of beauty. Shemekia is one of the great singers of our time. This record introduces listeners to another side of her, and I predict it will result in many new fans. Her voice on these songs is nothing short of magic."
- Mary Gauthier
