Bufford is an instance of big gifts coming in small packages. When she shops, she undoubtedly heads for the petite division, but when she sings, she goes for the big time. She recently was named second runner-up in the Room’s annual talent contest, but that underestimates her abilities. Watch her take any number of songs and turn them into unexpected emotional declarations. The blues rarely enjoy such a dynamic advocate.
