The soulful divas: personal portraits of over a dozen divine divas, from Nina Simone, Aretha Franklin & Diana Ross to Patti LaBelle, Whitney Houston & Janet Jackson
"In The Soulful Divas," David Nathan profiles the greatest female rhythm and blues vocalists of the past three decades as never before. He celebrates these outstanding artists in fascinating, unsanitized, behind-the-scenes portraits. All of the profiles are based on the author's long-standing, personal relationships with the women featured, and are an outgrowth of both his in-person interview sessions and informal chats. The result is an entertaining, candid look at the ups and downs of each performer's career, as well as how these African-American women have wielded power in a basically white, male-dominated industry.
