Tammi Terrell. I wish I had the words to say how much I adore her. That voice...she has got to be my favorite Motown female singer. Diana Ross? HAH!
She is mainly known, of course, as the (greatest) duet partner of Marvin Gaye. They recorded many classics, but I think this is their pinnacle -https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g0aWP-uRbAo
...but she recorded some underrated solo tunes, unfortunately forgotten by many.
Check this one out. It's my favorite of her solo singles. Written by Stevie Wonder and would eventually appear on his Hotter Than July album (vastly inferior version IMO), 'All I Do Is Think About You' is sublime, sweet and perfect. The way she sings "if you should discov-uh this dream is for two" leaves me weak in the knees -

Tammi, you are much missed!
