"Little" Jimmy Scott (b. 1925) is a U.S. jazz singer. Scott has Kallmann's syndrome, a genetic condition which stunted his growth at five feet and prevented him reaching puberty, leaving him with a high, boy-like voice. However it was his phrasing and romantic feeling that made him a favorite singer of fellow artists like Billie Holliday, Ray Charles, Dinah Washington, and Nancy Wilson. Scott was born on 17th July 1925 in Cleveland, Ohio, to Authur and Justine Scott in a family of ten. As a child he got his first singing experience in a church choir.
