Divas of Yesterday Appreciation Thread

Gotta start this one with Mahalia Jackson!



My fav. song of her's has to be
"In the Upper Room".

My dad used to play that song
when I was a kid. Love it!


I found a vid on youtube
of her, just amazing!

How about Edith Piaf? My Gran had her records and I fell in love with her voice even though I hadn't a clue what she was singing about cause I didn't speak Fench then.

Now I have read her biography and have a lot of her CDs. Edith ROCKED! Puts all the pop tarts to shame and did everything they do but 60 years ago! And with so much more style! I also love Ella Fitzgerald - my Gran had her recors too.
