Trivia Tuesday: Music Trivia - Answer!

Who did the vocals for Pink Floyd's "Great Gig in the Sky"?

B: Clare Torry

"Great Gig in the Sky" is one of the few Pink Floyd songs to use a female vocal.  Their engineer, Alan Parsons, brought in a singer he knew named Clare Torry who provided the hauntingly beautiful improvised vocal on the song. Thirty years later, she would sue Pink Floyd over rights to the song.
