    Heaven needed one of the most soulful, beautiful voices of all time, I guess.

    RIP to one of the greats...
  6. At last, her pain and suffering is come and gone, yet her magical voice will remain with us. RIP to an American treasure.

    And American Idol wanna-bes will continue to try and replicate her. Won't happen.

    Saw her in 2007. She sang while sitting, her voice still as strong and clear as ever. And her band was smokin' hot. RIP to a legend.
