Sal,

Artists can instantly recognize one of their own.
Bettye opens her mouth and Pete and Babs instantly start nodding their heads in recognition of "it", whatever that gift is that creates that voice and phrasing.

We can only hope that whoever still buys CD's goes out and discovers this amazing woman's catalog of great singing.

That was great. And it's always nice to see pedophiles get honored by Kennedy Center.
