Turns out she's a schooled professional who worked sessions in studios for most of her career.Thanks for the link to that story. I’m amazed. I always took that to be the voice of a black girl. Gut wrenching emotion in her vocals.
The lady you're referring to is Lisa Fischer, an extraordinary voice from Brooklyn, New York.The one female solo I think matches that is the part in the Rolling Stones “Gimme shelter”, I’ll link it if I can find it. I read someplace that the singer who did it (a black girl) was called up in much the same way, unexpectedly. She was pregnant at the time apparently, and after leaving the studio she had a miscarriage.
I had to wrack my brains for that, then I remembered I listened to it on Spotify months ago and the 'Genius' function started showing background info about her solo. It included the assertion that she had the miscarriage after that late night recording session. Don't know if they got it right or not, but one other interesting snippet from the story was where Genius points out an almost inaudible 'whoop' which it says is Keef Richards reaction to her hitting one of those notes so high her voice just cracks. Listen carefully and sure enough you can hear it!Regarding her miscarriage? I'm not so sure: can you link to a source for us? I was under the impression that Lisa was more physically disposed towards the ladies than the boys - which kind of makes sense when you see her teaching Jagger how to wrestle and audience into first submission, and then into passion.
But I'm open to correction.
