A onetime backup singer to Michael Jackson prior to becoming a famous, the rock goddess released one hit single after another, including "If it Makes You Happy," "A Change Would Do You Good," and "Everyday is a Winding Road," from her 1996 self-titled album.

Her career also took a backseat when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. After undergoing treatment, Crow came back strong with Detours (2008), a heartfelt album where the singer opened up about her new experiences as a mother and cancer survivor. The album also featured Crow's trademark world-weary ballads and breezy...
