Nina Simone (1933-2003) was a great American singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and civil rights activist.

Dusty Springfield ~ Singer, 1939-1999 ~ The owner of one of the most plaintive voices in recent decades, her sometimes tortured life did not prevent her from becoming one of the classiest female solo acts Britain has produced.

Isaac Lee Hayes, Jr. was an American songwriter, musician, singer, actor, and voice actor. Hayes was one of the creative influences behind the southern soul music label Stax Records, where he served both as an in-house songwriter and as a record producer, teaming with his partner David Porter during the mid-1960s.
