Nancy with soul

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Nancy Holloway migrated to France, where she's been a resident for over 40 years. She did many cover versions of soul songs, but this is a very heart-wrenching original written for her by Pierre Saka and J. Hideway.

Nancy Holloway - Prends Tes Clefs

Tendres années 60 is a good compilation of Nancy Holloway's hits, including her smashing cover of The Beatles' She Loves You (Elle t'aime).

Her official site (in French), with lots of photos.
Or if you can't read French, there's Nancy Holloway biography from Lyrics Vault here.
And the picture above shows Nancy with Nino Ferrer on bass!
