My name is Verlinda Zeno. A Louisiana native. I am the third of eight siblings of Effie Lee Zeno. I was raised by Georgiana and Allen Wright as an only child. Yes i am spoil rotten til this day. I am a blues artist and my stage name is Louisiana Mojo Queen, Ms Zeno. I moved to Memphis Tn singing backup for the late Lil Milton Campbell. The late Albert King introduced me to Beale St. I have been entertaining people from all over the world on Beale Street 22 years now. I always try to leave them with a positive lasting impression of their visit on Beale. I look forward to entertaining new and old fans each year. I perform European blues festivals tour once or twice a year. I have toured differents parts of Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Amsterdam, and Hungary. My late husband Rodney suffered a fatal heart while playing drums for my show Sept 12, 2005. It was so painful i almost gave up singing, But fans wouldn’t let give up and I knew Rodney would want me to continue singing into people hearts. From his death I learn to live and not take life for granted. Last year god bless me with a wonderful man whom I married June 2010. Michael is very supportive of me and my career. He accepts I am loved by many. He doen’t mine sharing me with my fans. I also have two adult sons Patrick age 28 amd Martel age 23. Two grandsons Torrian, Patrick’s son and Kylen, Martel’s son..Yes all males not females. I looking forward to Keepin the Blues Alive..Ms Zeno.
