Ever wondered who owned the voice that pierced The Rolling Stones "Gimme Shelter" like a diamond bullet?

Meet Merry Clayton.

 

Clayton recorded her own version of this song in the early 70's and turned it into a thunderstorm of stomping soul.

She was recently one of the subjects of the brilliant documentary film " Twenty Feet From Stardom".

Gimme Shelter?

 

More like sing up a storm.....
