July 3, 1940 – December 26, 2012
St. Louis' Queen of Soul
LA Times Piece
NY Times Piece
St. Louis Post Dispatch
Her album "Free" is an underground Masterpiece.
Singles include: Leave It In the Hands of Love, Lucky In Love, Everyday I Have To Cry, I'm Leaving The Choice To You, The Soul of a Man, Gee Whiz, Hold On This Time, Don't Mess Up A Good Thing, & Talking About Freedom.
Her gospel work is pretty good too. A class act all the way around. I highlighted her here in July 2012.
