Thelma Houston (née Jackson; born May 7, 1946, Leland, Mississippi) is an American singer and actress. She scored a number-one hit in 1977 with her cover version of the song "Don't Leave Me This Way", which won the Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
- Thelma Houston recorded a version of "Suedehead" in 2012, as mentioned in the March 23, 2012 statement at true-to-you.net: "You might also be aware that Thelma Houston has also recorded Suedehead this year." A snippet mp3 of the cover is on bbc.co.uk. Morrissey also mentioned the cover in an interview with Radionica (Colombia), translation by somehow still alive:
Q: Several artists have recorded versions of The Smiths or Morrissey. Have you had a chance to hear some? What is your opinion about them?
A: Of my solo songs, there are versions of Nancy Sinatra, David Bowie, Chrissie Hynde, Marianne Faithful and Thelma Houston. I kneel down every day and thank God, because it goes beyond my dreams. David Bowie took me one night to his studio in New York and played a version of one of my songs. I cried for a week. Of anything for what I have prayed in my life, I never imagined that I would be given so much.
The cover was also included in the intermission playlist played before Morrissey's concerts.
