After watching Christina Carter the other night, solo and as part of Charalambides, and being rocked back on my heels by her intensity and beauty, ive been having a think about my favourite female singers.

I have to start with Billie Holliday, who ive had a lovely 2cd collection of since childhood, then Ella and Diana Ross, which is fairly typical i guess.

In recent years Ive always loved Lauren Hills first album, and a big soft spot for Lily Allen that i cant seem to shake

So yeah. Birds, they can sing, innit?
