SHIRLEY WAHLS - WHY AM I CRYING
I can't BELIEVE what Shirley Wahls does with her voice at :57 into this track, repeats again before each chorus, then completely blows the roof off during the outro. What an incredible vocal range!
Shirley spent most of her career singing and recording gospel records, Shirley moved to Arkansas to Chicago around 1966 and cut a handful of secular sides of which this was the first.
