I always thought the female vocalist was of of African decent so I finally decided to google her. Turns out she's a British white female. I ALWAYS admired her humming on that album. She had freaken awesome vocals. Turns out that that everything wasn't rosey between her and Pink Floyd. Clare Torey is her name.\n\nLawsuitEdit\nIn 2004, she sued Pink Floyd and EMI for songwriting royalties on the basis that her contribution to "The Great Gig in the Sky" constituted co-authorship with keyboardist Richard Wright. Originally, she was paid the standard flat fee of £30 for Sunday studio work. In 2005, an out-of-court settlement was reached in Torry's favour, although the terms of the settlement were not disclosed. All releases after 2005 carry an additional credit for "Vocal composition by Clare Torry" for the "Great Gig in the Sky" segment of the booklet or liner notes.
