If you've never heard her name, you've missed hearing one of the most beautiful voices to grace our modern world...and one of music's more tragic stories. "Over the Rainbow" is the song that made Eva famous half a decade after her death.
"Waly Waly" is my own favorite, but I have an audiophile's dream of a stereo system that lets me appreciate every wonderful nuance of her voice.
What's the real story on Eva Cassidy?
PS. I am moved every time I hear her sing. Her voice inspired me to write...
Single, small, shyly shining star
You drifted through dark firmaments
Here and then
too soon gone,
but your voice
Fresh as morning’s dew
Beautiful as angel’s dreams,
With seeming effortless perfection
Crystal clear cascades of expression
For all to hear, hold dear, keep near
Within your gentle genius
Our soul’s caresses.
