British songwriters Anthony Newley and Leslie Bricusse wrote this as part of their 1965 Broadway musical The Roar Of The Greasepaint – The Smell Of The Crowd. It was first performed very operatically by Gilbert Price.
In this case, for original artist I am looking for the name of the woman who sings the most well-known and, by far, the most famous version of this song. She was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in 1933.

The definition of the Shadow artist’s band name is a person or personified force who is the source of inspiration for a creative artist.
