My thoughts turned to singers this morning. Off the top of my head, I can only think of two singers whose voices are so unique, they can be recognised, no matter with whom they sing. Their distinctive voices shine through, even when they are ondoing backing vocals.
Who can fail to recognise the voice of Stevie Nicks. I think she is amazing and I have had the privilege of seeing her live. She also came across as an extremely nice person. She has survived the rigours of drug addiction and chosen her own path.
The other person whose voice jumps out at me in this way is Michael McDonald. What a precious gift they both have, a voice which can be instantly recognised by millions around the world.
