Jenny Jordan Frogley

She's opened for Ray Charles, substituted for both Aretha Franklin and Gladys Knight and sung at Radio City Music Hall and Opryland . . . .
Pick up a local CD and chances are very good that she might be singing back-up vocals or an individual song or two  she appears on close to 100 albums.
      And if you play the "King Kong" video game, hers is the last voice you hear before you die.
