She was my hero, she was my mentor, she was my idol. I got to know her very very well and I was very proud that I did, because she was a real buddy of mine.

I think there's a whole life in this voice for her to sing the songs that she sings; I mean, you could cry listening to her and I just think she was like a beautiful ebony statue.

Great songs.
