Eva Cassidy’s music marks important moments

This week our fan club was called by a gentleman who told us a wonderful story. He had heard Eva Cassidy’s voice on the radio for the first time in his life: “I knew Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’ and I had also listened to Miles Davis’ performance, but Eva Cassidy’s rendition touched me so deeply that tears filled my eyes.”

It is marvellous that more than twenty years after the release of Eva Cassidy’s album Songbird, new people still discover her music. Not everyone calls us about it, but the number of lovers of Eva’s music is growing every day. We regularly receive emails, tweets and Facebook messages from people who write us how much Eva’s music means to them. Eva Cassidy’s performances mark important moments in people’s lives: her songs are played at weddings, at parties, during church services and at funerals. Eva’s voice also gives comfort to those who are ill. I notice that when I talk to someone about Eva’s music, the conversation becomes more intense and the sense of involvement in the other person increases. Music is nothing less than a miracle.

I heard Eva’s voice after the release of Songbird. I know all her albums, but I don’t know which song I like best. Sometimes I prefer the tranquillity of ‘Autumn Leaves’ and other times I opt for the exuberance of ‘Take Me To The River’. It is so cool that Eva Cassidy was able to play all those different musical registers. I am grateful that as a member of the fan club staff I can get so close to my favorite singer.
