Maria Callas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EseMHr6VEM0
Rhiannon Giddens. A genius — and not just because she won the MacArthur Grant. Her first opera is brilliant — and she can sing any genre of music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQAK6sVovUk
Joan Sutherland https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emVdLLp6a1U
Billie Holiday — Before jazz or swing, there was Billie Holiday. "Good Mornin', Heartache" is perfection. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDlKb2cBAqU
Birgit Nilsson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zO-S3nJl7Q
Barbra Streisand — As with Giddens, Streisand was classically trained and could sing in almost any genre. Her tribute album to Alan and Marilyn Bergman epitomizes phrasing and musicality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ifWOSnoCS0M&list=PLqADcilQMwvYmlWNrkOEy3wljnR3dieZd
