Canada Post plans to salute late blues legend Salome Bey  with a new stamp.

The stamp will be revealed at an event in Toronto next week, to be attended by the late singer’s two daughters.

The U.S. born Bey, known as Canada’s first lady of the blues, died in 2020 at the age of 86.

She ettled in Canada in 1964 and played the jazz club circuit to become a mainstay of the country’s music and theatre scenes.

She went on to nurture and teach up-and-coming Black artists, including singer and actor Jackie Richardson and award-winning soul singer Divine Brown.
