Her death reported on CNN:

Arguably one of the best female singers ever. Many people here will know her songs.

Had soul, Was soul.

Over and above her splendid talent, she influenced a generation of singer songwriters. She is meshed into the DNA of our musical heritage. I think her death will trigger a new appreciation of her work. She was exacting and suffered no fools, but her talent, I think, is undeniable.
