It's a far cry from her peak of the mega-hit ballad "A Whole New World" (a/k/a the love song from Aladdin), as this '90s r&b diva can't command platinum sales nowadaysthough few of the latest divas can pull it off, either. She's gone the jazz route since then and found some success there, yet has been on the gospel tip lately. Figure that her diversity is a good lesson for anyone in this lousy job market: diversify. It would be quite a show to hear her mix all these styles together, but come what may, her voice is still a thing of wonder.
