I was waiting for someone to say "Lada Gaga".....seriously, I find her to be an interesting person, but I can't seem to enjoy her music. And, if anyone says "Nikki Minaj", I'll probably resign. Has anyone watched her on American Idol?

seriously:
Judy Collins
Joan Baez
Barbra Streisand
k.d. lang
EDIT---forgot Cyndi Lauper

(am I showing my age?)

I will shamelessly plug my dear friend Valerie, guitarist for the Cruxshadows and Angelspit, who has a kickstarter going for her first solo effort: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWn-LkcyOsY

All great picks above. I go for the more non-mainstream jazz artists, sometimes obscure, but there is so much out there.
A few of my favorites:

Carmen Lundy http://youtu.be/zqNSviD9Q-8

Dakota Staton http://youtu.be/1KOCgpPJn2o

Ernestine Anderson http://youtu.be/UmPOP_igpvI

Janis Joplin rockin' blues
Pat Benatar Rock

Karen Carpenter (the end of Crystal Lullaby where she's doing harmony overdubbed is angelic), Patti Page, Sarah Vaughn (her Mercury recording of Poor Butterfly always destroys me when I hear it), Jill Corey, Julie London, Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Marion Hutton, Betty Hutton, Paula Kelly, Rene Fleming (I don't like opera but her voice is beautiful), Helen Forrest, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Dionne Warwick, Helen Reddy, Jo Stafford, Vera Lynn, I'm sure there is more but the ladies above deserve special mention.

One not mentioned is Eva Cassidy (RIP..skin cancer). Youtube up some of her live performances. Otherwise, all of the above.

Her most popular song and can be played at my funeral http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce-5OWBNGNw

My personal favorite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSXYu-3r1S8

Everything she's done ... moved me. She made each song her very own... in the most creative way.
Sadly ... she was .. and remains an unfinished symphony.
Everything she left to the world is a treasure.
