The Song - Honeysuckle Rose

I have to say thank you to my dad for this one. When I was about 14, he introduced me to the American singer Eva Cassidy. If you haven't heard her before, then you're most definitely missing out. She had one of the most amazing voices of our generation. Eva had an incredible talent for singing absolutely any musical style, and she lost record deals for refusing to stick to one genre. As the Washington Post commented, "she could sing anything — folk, blues, pop, jazz, R&B, gospel — and make it sound like it was the only music that mattered."

Unfortunately, in 1996 she passed away from cancer at the very young age of 33. However, the music she recorded lives on.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy her rendition of "Honeysuckle Rose".

Until next time :)
