About Karen Wolfe
Karen Wolfe was born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas August 14, 1959. She sang with her sister in an all-girl gospel group named Soul Unlimited for a decade. She recorded her first album, Stop By Here, with a gospel quartet group called The Harmonettes.
In 1992 Karen married Denise LaSalle’s brother-in-law, Gary Wolfe. They moved to Jackson, Tennessee in 1997. Denise hired Karen as a back-up singer and her career in Southern Soul started.
Denise recognized Karen’s talent and encouraged her to start a career, but Karen hesitated. Finally, Anna Coday (the late Bill Coday’s wife), who was Denise LaSalle’s road manager, became Karen’s manager. Karen signed with B&J Records, Bill Coday’s indie label, and released First Time Out in 2006.
Bill Coday, whom Karen still affectionately calls her “Paw Paw,” died on June 7, 2008, too soon to witness Karen’s remarkable second album, A Woman Needs A Strong Man (B&J), and her hit single, “Man Enough.”
“Every Woman Needs A Strong Man” won Southern Soul RnB’s Award for Best Southern Soul CD of 2009 (B & J Records, Exec. Producer—Anna Coday).
Song’s Transcendent Moment
“All of a sudden
My eggs aren’t scrambled right,
And everything I say
Starts a fight.
You keep threatening to go,
And I don’t know why,
But if you leave,
I ain’t gonna die.”
About National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum
Located in Fort Worth, TX, the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum (NMWHM) acknowledges the multicultural contributions of Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, European Americans, and African Americans in the settlement of the American frontier. Works of artists and others who documented people and events of the time via journals, photographs, and other historical items are part of the museum’s collection of overlooked materials that tell — often for the first time — the complete story of how the West was won. Through various educational programs (e.g., storytelling sessions, “Forgotten Cowboys Tour,” cultural heritage workshops, historical reenactments, participatory learning) at the museum and in the community, the Museum shares our multicultural western heritage while instilling positive values of diversity, tolerance, hard-work, and determination. Visitors to the museum and at our traveling exhibitions leave with an awareness that the American West came into being through the struggles and triumphs of racially and socio-economically diverse people. The museum’s Hall of Fame acknowledges the diverse American heroes of the past and present who have made significant contributions to western heritage and culture. Historians, academics, and community leaders nominate individuals each year for NMWHM’s annual induction. Past inductees include Charles Sampson, Pam Grier, Joe Beaver, Herb Jeffries, Quanah Parker, Fred Whitfield, Jim Lane, Charley Pride, Melvin Blount, Juan Seguin, and Walter Clarence “Buck” Taylor to just name a few.
