   I heard her sing on a radio broadcast about 12 years ago. She had passed away before then.
   Bought the album. GREAT!!! album. One of my favorites
   R.I.P Eva we miss you.

Great documentary. I have this CD. It should be required listening for all budding audiophiles. Her rendition of Autumn Leaves is transcendent.

She shyly started out as an adolescent on America's Got Talent...and wowed, them.  She dedicated, quite tearfully, her song (which I now forget what it was) to her father who was battling cancer.

What a fabulous talent and WAY too soon gone.

America's Got Talent premiered in 2006. Cassidy died ten years prior.

     first time I heard Eva was when my brother and I were picking up a pair of Altec Valencia's for him from an audio member Shadow.  He put on Live at Blues Alley.  We were both blown away.  Been a fan ever since.

My bad...it was another young singer who sang Eva's song, Songbird.   :duh:

Still, Eva's voice was mesmerizing and wonderful.

The first time I heard Eva Cassidy was in little bookstore in Northhamton, MA in 2002.  We were taking our daughter to look at Smith College, and were looking around the town.  Inside the bookstore were a pair of old Klipsch Cornwalls, and this haunting voice was singing  "Woodstock" in a mesmerizing way.  I just stood and listened. 
I don't remember where I was when I first heard any other artist.  But Eva was different. 

Interesting that Mudslide posted his comment seconds before mine.  We both chose the word "mesmerizing".
