Mick Jagger and Merry Clayton vocals "Gimme Shelter" Rolling Stones - Merry Clayton's voice gives me goosebumps. She was pregnant and wearing hair curlers when she recorded he track in an LA studio. WOW....THAT VOICE!

Merry Clayton, the female voice behind The Stones' "Gimme Shelter," and she did it in the middle of the night while she was heavily pregnant. The woman is every bit as good as Aretha. Maybe better.
