The amazing voice of Eva Cassidy

How wonderful that we have the opportunity to make new discoveries of musicians, artists and writers any time of our life. I can't think how it is that I've never heard of Eva Cassidy before.  My painting instructor played a CD of her songs yesterday and I was blown away by her amazing voice and delivery.

Eva was a shy young woman who never gained the fame she deserved and sadly she died of cancer in 1996 at age 33.

Just listen to this song and I bet, like me, you'll run to the nearest source to get some of her music.


Here's a brief excerpt from Wikipedia. If you click on the blue song titles you can see videos of the songs:
