Not all of my favorite divas are ladies from the past. One of my current favorites is Beyonce, whose voice is as lovely as she herself is. It’s not too often a diva can make a show tune synonymous with herself. Sure, there is Streisand, Judy Garland and others, but Beyonce has her own with this moving song from Dreamgirls. The inner working of youtube prevent me from linking to a superior performance, however, this one serves just as well to display her range, power and emotion while performing live, as opposed to the safety of the recording studio. You can see her seemingly react to the poor echo effect they used, though. Still, it’s a beautifully sung song by one of today’s best female voices and it never ceases to move me.
