Yep. I think she used to front Illinois Jacquet's band. Check out her album, "Haunted Heart."

You all got me searching and here's what I found.
Yes, a new Renee Fleming release due May 10 (US) and she's covering a wide range of music not normally associated with her. The CD includes Joni Mitchell's "River", The Beatles' "In My Life", Stevie Wonder's "My Cherie Amour", some more tunes including some opera.

Thank God she's not doing Rod Stewart covers!
