Where do I start…
So Eva Cassidy was from DC. She has an angelic voice and recorded some amazing tracks, more specifically her cover songs of classic pop song were mesmerizing. While she was popular in DC when she released some songs independently in 1992, she sadly was unable to see the true fruits of her talents as she prematurely passed away at 33 years of age from melanoma.
Four years after she died her cover of “Over The Rainbow” was featured on the BBC in the UK which caused such a stir, her album shot to #1 on the UK charts prompting 3 of her single to hit #1 and sell 10 million records.
Truly a great talent. If you like this cover of Cindy Lauper’s “True Colors” you will also love “Over the Rainbow” (which I also included below) and “Fields of Gold”.
