RIP Jimmy Scott.

High pitched falsetto American singer Jimmy Scott died on June 12 aged 88. Because of a medical condition his voice never broke giving him a unique range that made him an easily identifiable singer. Whether with Lionel Hampton in his early years or as a single working in the Rhythm and Blues field he was immediately recognisable.
Rest In Peace.
Obituary.
Lance.
