: Celebrating Jessye Norman

Jessye Norman Carol Friedman

Legendary soprano Jessye Norman passed away earlier this week. She was a forceful opera singer, and she could also give some of the most touching performances of spirituals we've ever heard. Norman was a guest on PT several times. We'll share highlights from those conversations, and celebrate her life and legacy, on this episode of Performance Today.
