The Listening: "Someday I'll Find You"

I can't provide context. I just learned who Noël Coward was courtesy of Wikipedia. As for biracial British soul singer Shola Ama, this is the only song I have heard by her and I have loved it since spending half an afternoon at a Sha Tin HMV listening station being enveloped by her voice.

What I can say is how distinctive Ama's nineties version (see the video here) is from this thirties version, that although I bought Twentieth Century Blues that afternoon, I don't think I have ever listened to the album in full and I don't know if believe Shola's "I'll find you," but I like hearing her claim it.
