Sharing exceptional voices

It can be anyone from any age and era,we sing to one another,birds sing,just about all creatures do but there are those (i believe) amongst our kind that have a touch of something,call them what you want,gifted,talented,exceptional.A powerful singer will move in ways that can be trained but also one can see how it helps move them like the song is playing out inside them,through them.

It can be anyone from anywhere on the planet.
