Shirley Horn

Biography:Shirley Horn (May 1, 1934 - October 20, 2005) was an American jazz singer and pianist.

Horn first achieved fame in 1960, when Miles Davis discovered her. She recorded several albums on different labels in the early 1960s. She was popular with jazz critics but never achieved much popular success. In the mid-1960s, she began to raise a family and limited her performing to her native Washington, DC.

Once her family was grown, she began touring more widely. She is best known for her recordings with Verve Records since 1987. Horn was nominated for nine Grammy Awards during her career winning in 1999 for Jazz Vocal Album for I Remember Miles, a tribute to her friend and encourager. She was also officially recognized for her achievements by the 109th US Congress for "her many achievements and contributions to the world of jazz and American culture".

She had been battling breast cancer when she died, aged 71.
