Etta James. She had her first hit in the UK a few years ago, when "I just want to make love to you" was used in a Coke (or was it Pepsi?) commercial!

OK here's a pretty obscure one.....who was originally known as (deep breath!) Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona?

Wow! Vikki Carr!
She's really well known in South America...so it seems she drank some Absinthe to change from Bisenta to Vikki!!

Ok..let's start a romantic night with your wife....have some wine, caviar, and melt her with some Barrence Eugene Carter 's music.
