OMG,adding this one to my extra special list...Miss Sarah Vaughan,I her. Her voice is so sharp,melodic & beautiful I bet this jazz legend could be an Opera star if she wanted. She is my 9th and final pick,she like Gladys I don't think was mentioned! Sarah takes me to heaven(so to speak).

That reminds me above I meant to say 6 decades(not 9,I just flipped the numbers...hey these voices had me somewhere else,jokes)! I also must say thats still impressive especially considering most of her contemporaries(or even other artists)didn't live a long & productive life like she did. She never lost it,case in point when I was a kid I saw one of her last major tv performances. It was a special for the late Sammy Davis in 1990 and she rocked! I was young but I knew this woman was special...just how special I would find out some years later. However,its something that I'll never forget,the song btw was 'Too Close for Comfort'! Oh,what I wouldn't do to go back to 1990 to see that again.
