I was 16 years old when I first heard Phyllis Hyman sing. It was on the radio, and the song was “You Know How to Love Me.” I was instantly captivated by her voice. It was so rich and soulful, and she had such a powerful range. I knew right then and there that I was going to be a fan for life.

She was a master of the ballad, but she could also belt out a powerful soul number with the best of them.
