Natalie has inner beauty.................which shines through in her voice and touches everyone who hears it. I'm going to cue up her cover of Space Oddity right now and get touched!

Sorry, I forgot:

Ella Fitzgerald- The Lady is a Tramp "I follow Winchell and Read ehehvry Line!"

& Mack the Knife Live where she forgets the words, she was brilliant!

Les Nubians-2nd Album everything on it

Angelique Kidjo- Hougbati

Flora Purim singing/ullulating(?) Black Narcissus "It helped me survive 4 college years drug & alcohol free in Amherst MA". Who needs to trip out when you've got Flora!

Angela Wimbush "Smile" LP of EP version not the cassette.

Sharon Redd formerly of Bette Midler's Harlettes "Can You Handle it"

Anita Baker from A Night of Rapture Live version of "You Bring Me Joy"

Dawn Silva from Parliament Funkadelic-She hits the operatic high notes on Send a Gram and The Big Bang Theory, etc.

Jennifer Bynum-From movie Hustle and Flow "Change Ma Name"

Mahalia Jackson-His Eye is on the Sparrow

Fonda Rae-Deputy of Love, Touch Me (All Night Long) and various songs for Kid Creole and Dr. Buzzards Original Savanna Band

Re: female vocalists... Have you ever noticed there are some singers that women just seem to hate? Through informal polling, I've found a large proportion of females I know seem to hate singers such as: Natalie Merchant Sheryl Crow Edie Brickell Kate Bush Why is this?

What is she up to these days, anyway?

P.s. johnapril's signature keeps throwing me for a loop as I scan down posts.

Regardless of what genre of music that you have grown up listening to, or who your favorite artists is, most who take an unbiased look/listen at this ladies music will say that Shirley Bassey has got to be, technically speaking, one of the greatest POP female vocalists to ever pick up a microphone! It's not the 'Top 40' that keeps one coming back for more, it is simply, 'THE AMAZINGLY POWERFUL VOICE' and the LIVE performances. Shirley Bassey's world wide record sales are formidable amounting to somewhere between 100-200 Million over the past 54+ years which includes (50+ Gold, 22 Silver, ## Multi-platinums - Lost Count). Again, with everything said, it always gets down to each person's favorite. Although I am a fan of Shirley Bassey, I like tons of other artists as well including many of those listed by others, and my main point here is to tell people who are unaware about Bassey's unsurpassed technical vocal abilities. There are literally hundreds of Shirley Bassey video clips on youtube to check out!
