Much too soon, Fairchild. Eva's voice would have to be my favourite female singing voice, ever. Like crystal clear water falling from a spring.

She had a voice of an angel. I have all of her CD's She reminds me of a young Judy Collins. What a great folk/jazz/gospel singer & interpreter she was.

Here's another one of my favorites by Eva....It gives me chills every time. This was performed live in her home town just months before she passed away in 1996 at age 33. :cry:

It's strange how things pop up. Two years ago this week, I was singing this very arrangement at my Dad's funeral. It was either a case of using the backing track for this version or Elvis's, and this one seemed more fitting for some reason.

Her live album at Blues Alley is a blast.

How nice. "Coincidence" to me, is a little reminder to pay more attention, too :D

Eva Cassidy had one of the most beautiful voices I ever heard.

I think her version of "Songbird" even tops the original. And her cover of Buddy Holly's "It Doesn't Matter Anymore" is superb.
