Unknown Singer – Mystery Girl an Etta James Song

Ok, so this has absolutely nothing to do with photography. I was sent this link to a Youtube video of an unknown person singing along to Etta James.

Now Etta James was considered one of the greats when it comes to female singers, and is one of a small number of blues and jazz singers who are used for comparison. One recent artist who has been compared favourably to Etta is Imelda May. Imelda gave me goosebumps when I first heard her and this mystery singer falls into that category too. When you bear in mind, it was recorded with a very basic (i.e. camera) microphone, you have to wonder how she would sound with better recording equipment.
