Rene Bailey started singing gospel as a young girl in her Georgia church. Moving north to Connecticut, she hit the New York City scene where she sang blues and jazz. The transition from gospel to nightclub work came naturally, and Rene became the featured vocalist at the Peg Leg Bates Country Club for over 20 years.
In church it's called "shouting" - the gospel dance. "They get up and shout and shout and shout." In a nightclub when Rene Bailey sings and "it" hits, you holler, "Yes, indeed!"
