Such an awesome talent. She had a very distinct voice and was a great pianist. Everything she did was soulful.

The High Priestess Of Soul had some very strong views and she didn't care if she offended. A woman who knew her own mind everyone should try and find and listen to "The Martin Luther King Suite" recorded live the day after he was killed - it is so moving and yet angry.An Amazing Woman.
