Guardian Obituary by Bob Dickinson
In 1961, when rhythm and blues artists like Ray Charles and the Drifters were crossing over into the US pop charts, the timing was perfect for a white, female artist with the emotional firepower of an African-American soul singer. Such an artist was Timi Yuro, who has died aged 63. Her deep, strident, almost masculine voice, staggered delivery and the occasional sob, created a compelling musical presence.

Yuro was born into an Italian-American family in Chicago. Against the wishes of her father – who beat her for singing – from seven to 10 she was encouraged by her mother to take operatic training, and recorded several demo discs. She was also exposed to African-American culture through her friendship with black neighbours, who played records by Dinah Washington, an artist who left an indelible influence on Yuro’s style. Yuro recalled also being baptised, several times, during church visits with those neighbours.
