On Friday Irma Thomas brought the Gospel Tent to its knees with her tribute to Mahalia Jackson... and then today, on the seventh and final day of Jazz Fest 2013, the sensational Irma had thousands dancing at the Gentilly Stage. Singing her own take on "Hey Pocky Way," as well as her classic hits, Irma Thomas proved yet again that she is truly is the Soul Queen of New Orleans!
