New Orleans native Mary Gauthier has seen it all. A runaway at 15, Gauthier spent the next couple of decades in and out of jail and halfway houses, addicted to drugs and alcohol. She also attended the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts and started a restaurant called Dixie Kitchen in Boston's Back Bay area. Here's the title track off of Mercy Now, her first major label release, and the record that put her into the spotlight and onto many top ten lists in 2005.
