This is the thread for all off-topics NOT having anything to do with Susan Boyle.

How about three women better known for their voices than their looks.

Mama Cass Elliott - Dream A Little Dream...

Here's another one:

Mercedes Sosa



Fantastic voice, which has arguably improved as she's gotten older!

I like Mercedes Sosa. I got to see her perform once in Paris.

I will add Honolulu's very own star performer Ku'uipo Kumukahi to the list.

Only wish the recording was of a better quality.

Your'e very lucky! I've always wanted to see her, but never have. Now her health is so bad, I don't know if she will still perform.

How about two of the world's most beloved female soloists, who have delighted millions as their songs were "sung" by others:

Asha Bhosle!

and her sister, Lata Mangeshkar!



I can't find any video of Lata performing live, but here's a movie clip with her voice:

Thank you for posting these. Asha and Lata's voices are fantastic.
I love these singers from Pakistan/India and male singers just as much.

Now this is the Goddess of the Middle-East, the one and only Oum Khalsoum.
She was a hero in the Arab world. The woman was worshipped. Audiences went wild.
I got to go to one of her Paris performances once in my life.

Not to forget Fayrouz, her Lebanese counterpart. Another extraordinary personality and voiice from the Middle-East. I never got to see her, unfortunately.

Truly a legend, and you are so fortunate to have seen her perform!

Here is another legendary voice from Latin America, Violeta Parra:



She was a visual artist as well, her works hang in the Louvre. Here is a clip from her time in France:

This has become a conversation between the two of us, Madame! Doesn't anyone else have something to add?  wave

I was going to say the same thing, this is a two posters thread.  Wow!

I did not know Violeta Parra. She sounds very human. Taken from the interview she comes from a family of 10 children, mother is poor and she says she herself is also poor and she never has any money.

How about someone famous, Opera Diva Montserrat Caballe?

The cats duet:

Their two voices were a match made in heaven

Unfortunately she was not well known outside of South America. Many of her songs have become famous when sung by others (i.e. Gracias a la Vida, Volver a los 17).

I was not familiar with her, but her voice is fantastic!

You mentioned Cass Elliott earlier. I've always thought she was great, too. This is one of her less-known songs, California Earthquake:

This song remains relevant for all residents of California!
