This woman (http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=fvuSrNJXVPc) is Rachel Hylton, an amateur singer and contestant in a UK television talent show.

I think she is simply the best female vocalist that I have ever heard.

What do you think?

definitely a tremendous talent, she'll go far.

As a singer she seems decent, but I can't say she just blows me away. Granted that's a terrible arrangement of a fantastic song (Nina Simone's version is the widely accepted best, though Coltrane did it nicely as well), and she makes the melody near a boring monotone.
