Georgie is a glamorous blues singer in waiting, but unfortunately she's living the life of a cheesy wedding singer. Living in a converted former brothel in New Orleans' French Quarter with her grandmother and various other eccentrics, she discovers a diary from the 1940s written by her great-aunt, a talented blues singer. Struggling to get her life on the right track, Georgie uses the diary as her inspiration to becoming the blues goddess she was destined to be.
