Hooker says: “The blues is one of our last national treasures. I am happy to do my part and keep it alive and nourished. I know that's the way my daddy would have wanted it. 

“His music contributions continue to impact pop culture to this day, and I know he is in the studio with me every time as I continue to keep his legend alive.”

In addition, she’s also announced plans to release Zakiya Hooker: Live At The International BluesFest, which was recorded in Germany. The album will feature a selection of her father’s tracks along with songs from her back catalogue.
