Meschiya Lake was named from Hebrew as “the anointed one.” Though Ms. Lake has yet to save the world, Meschiya has come a long way from Rapid City, South Dakota where at the age of nine she won a prize singing at a steakhouse. After high school, she hit the road and joined a traveling circus that later brought her to New Orleans in 2000. That’s where she leads her band, the Little Big Horns.

Singer Meschiya Lake is one of four New Orleans women up for this year's Big Easy "Best Female Entertainer" Award. Meschiya Lake and her Little Big Horns band play Jazz Fest Saturday, April 28th.
