dellaEP

Long before Touched By An Angel and her acting career, the late Della Reese, who died Monday at 86, was an enormously popular and eclectic vocalist, who could shift effortlessly from R&B to pop, jazz and gospel. She had several successful singles in the late 1950's and this sampler offers a look at her remarkable range from a 1956 TV appearance to singing the blues at the White House in 1999.
