John, does it count if she's part of an ensemble? In any case, here's my favorite from the 60's. Mary Travers in " Leaving on a Jet Plane ". This one was from their 25th anniversary concert. (Sorry Buzz, it's on You Tube and I can't convert it. Maybe Six will see it and do so.)
Leaving On a Jet Plane
Thanks Jim. I haven't yet figured out how to embed stuff in here, so all I could do was post a link.
At the time, I absolutely hated this song, mostly because I was always getting on an airplane or ship, leaving the people I cared about behind, and going to someplace unpleasant. Once that ended, I started to appreciate the song and the artistry that created it.
I think I've found the method of embedding. I'll try it on the next one.
Beautiful Kav. Another of my favorites. Here's another that I've always liked.
That's a good one TTGA.

One of my favorite singers, Rita Coolidge with Keb' Mo'....Walking on Water.
I was fortunate to she Ruth Brown at the Chicago blues festival about twenty years ago.
You've hit a home run with this one John. Not a ton of comments but an enormous number of great songs.
This one is a bit more classical. From the opening credits of the movie. Julie Andrews.
Toni Childs, Don't Walk Away
Have to consider these two together. Here is Anna and Frida with the whole band at the Wembley concert.
This was an encore..Best band ever!

Wheel ! You may not remember me yet I remember you from the vine. Glad to see you here.
I drop by once in a while. Nice to hear from you too.
Glad you're still with us, even though you only seem to drop by once or so a year.....LOL.
I don't know how I could ever forget my love. My beautiful white witch.
The classic You're So Vain by Carly Simon has been repurposed.
