So many of my blog friends have been posting beautiful tributes to Shirley Verrett as a testimony to her art and the woman herself. Even the normally acerbic commentors on Opera chats have take time off from proving how witty and all-knowing they can be to write simple appreciates for this great singer.
Over at Singer for all seasons my dear Yvette posted a few simple and beautiful words to commemorate Shirley Verrett and this clip which I had never heard before and I am borrowing it with both apologies and appreciation to her for initially posting it.
I have nothing more that I can say.
