Reminiscing with Rita

Coolidge concert takes fans on a nostalgic journeyCoolidge delivered the goods, singing "Rain," "Delta Lady," "Fever," "We're All Alone" and "Higher and Higher."

Coolidge did some remembering of her own, calling up her Southern roots.

"My daddy is a preacher," Coolidge said, alluding to her days as a rock 'n' roll backup singer for Joe Cocker. "I didn't get involved in all the things of those times . . . [I] just tried to help out my friends."

Coolidge also showed her pride in being American Indian, singing "Amazing Grace" in her native Cherokee.
