Betty Harris - Soul Queen of New Orleans

I've been listening to Soul the last few days so you'll have to excuse me if I indulge my delight in one or two really good singers.

Wikipedia says

Betty ..... is an American Soul Singer. Her recording career in the 1960s produced three hit records that made the Billboard R&B and pop charts: "Cry to Me" (1963), "His Kiss" (1964) and "Nearer to You" (1967). However, her reputation among soul music connoisseurs far exceeds her commercial success of the 1960s, and her recordings for the Jubilee and Sansu record labels are highly sought after in the 2000s by fans of Northern Soul and Deep Soul.
