Bustamante said[quote][cite]ConQuest said[/cite]I started liking her when she shifted away from country. She has an amazing voice. It's probably been 30 years ago now (doesn't seem possible), but I loved her duet with Roy Orbison of "Crying"...
She did country? Oh, well I'm glad she switched to a different style. I'm quite a fan of her voice, might have to get some of her music off amazon mp3.
Yes, she started out in country in like the late 70's early 80's. She had a very butch boy haircut, but tried wearing the long skirts - was very odd. When she finally came out of the closet and switched to more mainstream adult contemporary she became more popular - late 80's early 90's if I remember.
Her voice is much better suited for what she is doing now. IMO.
