Eva Cassidy ~ Remembered November 2, 2014Posted by Retired Geezer in Love.
If you’ve never heard of Eva Cassidy you’re in for a bittersweet treat.
I’ve been a fan for years, this video made me weep.
She also has a beautiful version of “Fields of Gold”. Here’s what Sting had to say about it:
Years after Eva’s death, Sting did hear her recording of the song. In the article “Robin Young: Forever Catching Fireflies in a Bottle” by Laura Bernieri, we learn that “Robin was able to get Sting to listen to Eva’s rendition of ‘Fields of Gold.’ She has him on camera saying that he was quite territorial about that song, arrogant even, only to be brought to tears by her totally different vocal interpretation.”
Eva passed away N0vember 2, 1996.
