Another British Soul Singer

Starting with the inimitable Dusty Springfield, Great Britain has produced some of the finest female soul singers in pop music.  In fact, probably the best white soul singers are British women.  Dusty, Annie Lennox, and Amy Winehouse are three of the most famous.  (Some might argue Joss Stone, but I will fight anyone who compares her to Dusty.)

I don’t know where she’s been, but I just discovered Adele.  What a talent.  What a voice.  I saw her on an NPR Tiny Desk concert, and I fell in love.  Wow.
