23. No contest for my tastes - Anita Kerr
Fri Jan 25, 2019, 06:10 AM
Jan 2019

These are songs by her group, The Anita Kerr Singers. She is the soprano and probably the most beautiful female voice I've ever heard. First heard her voice with her group in the 60s as Nashville studio backup singers for dozens of top country hits, many under the production work of Chet Atkins. She then took her musical efforts to California and later on to Europe.
