After collaborating with the sensational Queen Latifah on the 1964 Broadway tune“Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)”, Tony Bennett couldn’t praise the ever-versatile rapper/actress/jazz singer enough. Of the recording, he remarked, “You will discover that Queen Latifah has a beautiful voice and I think the best voice since Ella Fitzgerald. You watch, she is going to be around a long time she has so much talent. She has eliminated all fear from her attitude. She is just so positive in her approach to everything… acting or singing…whatever she does she does it so well. She really sings with the gift Ella had. When you listen closely to “Who Can I Turn To”, her voice is as sweet a voice as any woman that I’ve heard sing.”
