Odia Coates is best known for her recordings with Paul Anka (Having My Baby, One Man Woman/One Woman Man). As a soloist, however, she was not blessed with a successful career. Her best known solo work may be You Come And You Go, written by Paul Anka. She also sang with John Denver on his famous Country Road.
My personal favorite by her is Don't Leave Me In The Morning, a song that shows the different shades of her beautiful, expressive voice.
She was born in Vicksburg Miss., but as a child moved to California. Sadly enough, she died of breast cancer at age 49 in 1991. May her soul rest in peace.
