Dinah Washington

Dinah Washington, the "Queen of the Blues," was a torch singer who sang in church choirs as a child and made her leap to stardom with the ballad, What a Difference a Day Makes. Born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, her rendition of Baby (You've Got What It Takes) was a giant pop and R&B hit in 1960, and she was inducted into the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame in 1986. A 40-song box set, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, was released in 1999.
