Faye Adams

Pete Grendysa, Goldmine, 23 October 1987

SHE HAS A TRANSLUCENT, flawless complexion, and her facial features are doll-like, suffused with an inner glow. Barely over five-feet tall, she holds herself oddly erect, as if to deny her short stature. And, when she sings, her voice is powerfully and immediately captivating. A major star of rhythm and blues, she came from the church in the early 1950's and has gone back to stay.
