She definitely seemed to show more range than I thought she had, but I've never delved too deeply into her back catalogue.
Best live vocal I've ever seen.
I saw her supporting Erykah Badu when she was... maybe 16, just before The Soul Sessions was released? Brixton Academy. Audience was 95% black. This 16 year old girl walks onto stage and there was definitely a vibe of what the fuck is this little white girl on the stage for? Then she opened her mouth... and I'd never seen an audience change their opinion more quickly. I don't remember an audience paying attention to a support act like that ever before or since, particularly not an unknown one.
