Few entertainers have ever commanded such depth of artistry in every medium. Fewer still have been
rewarded with Broadway’s coveted Tony Award (Best Featured Actress in a Musical The Wiz), nominated
for the London theater’s West End equivalent, the Laurence Oliver Award (Best Actress in a Musical Lady
Day), won two Grammy® Awards (1998’s Best Jazz Vocal Performance and Best Arrangement
Accompanying a Vocal for "Cottontail" Slide Hampton, arranger "Dear Ella "), and France’s 1998 top
honor Victoire de la Musique (Best Jazz Vocal Album).
