Songbird

24 Aug

I close each of the two hours on my Tuesday night radio show, American Independence Hour, with the song Danny Boy.  That version of the song is haunting.  But the singer’s not well known, so a number of listeners have written to me to ask Who sang that song?

It was Eva Cassidy.

Here’s her story as portrayed by Nightline. Her story’s not about law. It’s not about economics or politics.  But her story is about life–and it’s worth your time

She could sign it all.  She really was a “songbird”.
