Ethel Waters

Ethel Waters (1896–1977) was an American blues, jazz, and gospel vocalist and actress. She began her career in the 1920s singing blues, but later frequently performed jazz, big band, and pop music, on the Broadway stage and in concerts. In 1949 Waters was nominated for an Academy Award, the second African American (after Hattie McDaniel) to receive such a nomination. In 1962 she became the first African-American woman to be nominated for an Emmy Award. Her recordings include "Dinah", "Stormy Weather", "Taking a Chance on Love", "Heat Wave", and "Cabin in the Sky".
