I remember the first time I heard her song "I am woman". I was just a kid. I always liked her. I guess I even had a crush on her.

 

I distinctly recall my Mom listening to the radio and that song came on and my Dad walked over and changed the station. My Mom changed it back. There were some harsh words spoken and then my Mom took the pot of chili she was making and dumped it in the sink and she told my Dad "Make your own damn lunch" and walked out. My Dad was an ass.

 

Yes, Ms. Reddy had an impact.

 

Rest In Peace, Helen Reddy. :(

One of those singers with an instantly recognizable voice, like Siantra or Streisand.

In an interview a few years ago she told about the time she saw her name in an American history textbook. She said that is when she knew she had truly had an impact.

She was singing "standards" in the Rainbow Room With Stars at Radio City Music Hall in January 1966.  

She had gained a bit of weight (and who hasn't?) but the voice was still great.

Another one my age.  Is this an omen?

 

I likes some of her stuff, some not so much.

 

All in all, much better than today's "talent".

Fantastic talent.   Thank you for sharing it with us, Ms. Reddy.  Rest in peace. 

 

She and Mack on the same day.   Make one heck of a dup.
