The Guardian describes Eva Cassidy as One of the greatest voices of her generation.

See the world premiere of Eva, a Dance Celebration commission dedicated to the life and music of American legendary vocalist and instrumentalist, Eva Cassidy. Battling melanoma that took her life at 33, she told her mother, All I want to do when I get well is sing and travel around with my music. She has since become a cult figure.
