Patti Labelle - You are my Friend
This is almost beyond gold and an example of having awesome back up singers. Debbie is clearly a church singer. She has a timbre to her voice that I really can't describe but am sure I could not dare sing. She's what I mean by Black women and men doing things with their voice that I've never heard mimicked. I saw Patti in concert one year at the Essence festival and thoroughly appreciated her showmanship. You can see how she flowed from the song about her friend to singing about Jesus.
