Canada Post has unveiled a new stamp that celebrates the life and work of Salome Bey, known as Canada’s First Lady of the Blues.

Bey, a singer-songwriter, composer, producer, director and actor, was a Grammy nominee, a Dora Award winner and an honorary member of the Order of Canada.

Canada Post revealed the new stamp at an unveiling ceremony at Meridian Hall on Thursday, which was attended by Bey’s two daughters, SATE and TuKu.

Designed by Paprika, the stamp features an illustration by David Belliveau based on a photo by Doug Griffin.
