Little Ann (born Ann Bridgeforth; 22 March 1945 – 26 January 2003)was an American soul singer. Her recording career was short-lived but her work was 'rediscovered' shortly before her death. Originally from Chicago, but growing up in the small town of Mount Clemens in Michigan, "Little Ann" Bridgeforth performed regularly as a singer, including at her cousin's club, Michelle's Playroom. When she was getting gigs elsewhere, she changed her name to Little Ann - how she was known within the family, as the youngest of seven brothers and sisters. In 1967 in Detroit, she recorded ‘Deep Shadows’, produced by Dave Hamilton, but it was not released, and was almost lost to history.
