I've been a fan of her fabulous voice for many years now, she was unique in her genre, refusing to be pigeonholed in Gospel/R&B styles...moving on to more pop style music. She didn't care, she just wanted to sing, and that she did.
Her voice was velvety and rich, broad and powerful, like an elixir that fills you in places you didn't know needed filling. True talent is hard to ignore and even harder to match. It's no accident that her songs were chosen so many times in American Idol to raise the stature of the contestants...she set the standard of quality for those songs
