Can't remember the name of a female vocalist, mid-1980's, ethereal quality to her voice, jazz - torch song kinda style. I think she had a one-word name and sharp, almost Egyptian features, light chocolate skin. Beautiful intonation but I can remember no words.

Best answer: That's who I thought of. Her name is pronounced "Sharday," if that helps.

Response by poster: Posted 'Perfect' before I caught the 'Sharday', which answered my only doubt. Thank you both.

Sade returned to put out an excellent album in 2000. I can recommend it highly.
