Once again I find out about a voice I have loved many times
while being unaware of the singer: Doris Troy
According to Wikipedia, she sang back-up for The Rolling Stones, and Pink Floyd, however she is NOT that sultry wailing crescendo on Great Gig in the Sky
(which was Clare Torry). Speaking of stories behind sultry voices, check THIS…
And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt:
for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors,
and he shall send them a saviour, and a great one, and he shall deliver them.
And the Lord shall be known to Egypt,
and the Egyptians shall know the Lord in that day,
and shall do sacrifice and oblation;
yea, they shall vow a vow unto the Lord, and perform it.
And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it:
and they shall return even to the Lord,
and he shall be intreated of them, and shall heal them.
In that day shall there be a highway out of Egypt to Assyria,
and the Assyrian shall come into Egypt, and the Egyptian into Assyria,
and the Egyptians shall serve with the Assyrians.
In that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and with Assyria,
even a blessing in the midst of the land:
Whom the Lord of hosts shall bless, saying
Blessed be Egypt my people,
and Assyria the work of my hands,
and Israel mine inheritance.
Isaiah 20 (KJV)
