    Thanks Jinxy. Her voice shines through her solo works too.

    I think she's been well served by using Dave Stewart as a producer as well.

    Alison Krauss with The Chieftains. Her voice is mesmerizing.

    Never heard of this singer, but am wowwed by her voice. It has tinkly/pure timbre in the upper registers, and yet she has a nice breathy bottom (you hear that a little in the 2nd song). If she were singing country in the U.S. with a couple back-up singers, she'd be playing stadiums, easy.

    Weelll, there may have been a dozen years of vocal maturation between the first and the second song I posted, from her first album (2005) and her latest (2017). That might account for the changes you're hearing toward the bottom of the scale.

    This song & her style in singing don't really move me, though I can't argue with the truth of the central idea. But her voice? That's another matter. I'd like to hear her sing some tunes w/real harmonic & vocal dynamics, soft-to-loud and back. I think there's a helluva lot more in that voice than we hear in this tune.

    The timbre and frequency range remind me a bit of Tracy Chapman, another artist whose tunes didn't really get through to me (but the voice sure did).

    Next one I really need to look into and get more of is a sweetheart I found when browsing through a collection of royalty-free music at one point. (Somehow the song got lost in some corner of my collection until Shuffle reminded me of it a few minutes ago.)

    Yeah, this is a cover of the Destiny Child's song, but the harmonies kill me.

    WARNING: TURN YOUR SOURCE VOLUME DOWN DUE TO THE APPLAUSE START.



    Edit: found a live SNL version from Destiny's Child:

    This late recording by Billie Holiday just destroys me. Her voice is nearly gone. It's pure soul: artistry & pain (she died the following year). Many had hurt this woman, but no one more than herself:

    My daughter was actually listening to this one on Spotify...this recording is 'meh', but the studio version is awesome.
    She has a lovely voice.
