    My favorite story is about narcotic agents trying to shoot at her while she sped away in her car.She was supposed to appear in a Harlem club that night.An agent went to the gig to arrest her but ended up ordering drinks and watching her sing all night.He called his boss at 4 am to say she was singing Do Your Duty
