BORN: April 16, 1939, Hampstead, London, England
DIED: March 2, 1999
Britain's greatest pop diva, Dusty Springfield was also the finest white soul singer of her era, a performer of remarkable emotional resonance whose body of work spans the decades and their attendant musical transformations with a consistency and purity unmatched by any of her contemporaries; though a camp icon of glamourous excess in her towering beehive hairdo and panda-eye black mascara, the sultry intimacy and heartbreaking urgency of Springfield's voice transcended image and fashion, embracing everything from lushly-orchestrated pop to gritty R&B to disco with unparalleled sophistication and depth.
One of Kimmer's all time favorite Divas! We were very sad that Dusty died so young. Our favorite song by Ms Springfield is : "All I See Is You"
Actually we love all of her songs and she was such a trend setter and soulful British singer. She sounds almost like she's from the southern US. Here is another of our most favorites
I miss Dusty Springfield.
