Shirley Brown is a soul singer, born January 6, 1947 in West Memphis, Arkansas who is best known for her single "Woman to Woman" which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1975.

Woman to Woman
In 1975, Brown's hit "Woman to Woman" was nominated for a Grammy Award, but she didn't win. (The song was later covered by Barbara Mandrell in 1978 and became a top-five country hit for her.) After her very successful debut album, Woman to Woman, she came out with more albums such as Shirley Brown, For the Real Feeling and Intimate Storm. None of these albums was successful and her popularity fell at a surprising rate.
