On Christmas day 1948, we received a gift that we wouldn’t appreciate for many years. I’m talking about the gift of Merry Clayton and her powerful, soulful voice. And of course, the song that moved her into the ears and eyes of many people was Gimme Shelter by The Stones. The real magic of that song (for me) is her backing and lead vocals with Jagger.
She also worked with many other notables including Neil Young.
