I miss seeing Ida and feeling her gorgeous music. I hope you are well and happy. You have improved my mood and quality of life since the 1980’s in Waldo. Currently the building is another bar and grill. Back then we could enjoy “steak night” and be mesmerized by Miss Ida.

In 1991 when I turned 21 I was asked what I wanted to do for my birthday. Ida was staring in a play at the American Heartland Theater. That is what I did for my 21st birthday. I had snuck into a few places before I was 21 to listen to Ida perform. I would really love to know what the name of that play was though. I'm 50 years old now and still tell people about the play and how if they ever get to Kansas City they need to go hear Ida. I'm from Kansas City, born and raised.

Ida was a sweetheart. I was a young line cook at Mr. Putsches on the Plaza and would bring her popover sandwiches made with prime rib. After the kitchen closed I would sit in the bar storeroom and listen to her sing till closing. She is the best!

I first met Ida at Linwood Super where she was a frequent and honored shopper. Ida is a legend and a class act. I love her sound and her talent.

Are you and the Blue Room still providing unbelievable music on third Saturdays?

If so, what time does your show start and end?

Who would you most like to visit with today if it were possible? Julia Lee or Mary Lou Williams and why?

Ms. Ida:

I used to enjoy seeing you at The Point in the late 80's and at Quincy's in the Adams Mark in the late 80's and early 90's I think. I had a chance to speak with you at Quincy's and really enjoyed your performances. I hope this note finds you well.

My girl, you look great. I sent you an email with a special request. I know that I have high expectations, but what is a girl to do when she is calling out all the stops?
I love you today just like yesterday and back at Wyandotte High School.
Blessings my friend

I was looking around I tunes for Paul Williams songs done by other artists and came across your version of "You and Me Against the World." Listened to the preview. Immediately bought the song. Sat back and listened to the song. Wow. Wow. Wow. So moving. It was a postively transforming experience. I can't believe I've never heard of you before. What artistry. Just sublime. Thank you so much. It was simply lovely.

Thank you for using what God gave you; a unique voice, with the rare ability to be a legenday song stylist such as the likes of Gladys Knight, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, and Ms. Lena Horne.Â
Words could not truly describe the sensation of hearing you perform, but if I may try, let me use words like Magnificent, captivating, spell binding, and I could go on and on. .
Thank you again for allowing us the opportunity to experience the Greatness known as Ms Ida McBeth.

Ida: Â I have enjoyed your music for years and still do here from Seattle. Â my reason for sending this message is to ask if you are familiar with a marvelous street musician I met a year or so at the Farmer's Mkt. Â He plays the flute and belted out a rendition of Hubert Law's "Land of Passion" and his is name is Marvin Hollingshead (sp). Â I was very taken with his abilities with the flute. Â He should be performing with some of the jazz groups around the KC area.
