Jessye Norman: Stand up Straight and Sing!

One of the world’s most accomplished opera singers, Jessye Norman faced the challenges of growing up under the struggles of racism in the Deep South. Following a long tradition of American sopranos who have refused to be constrained by societal limits, Norman is “one of those once-in-a-generation singers who is not simply following in the footsteps of others, but is staking out her own niche in the history of singing” (New York Times). She is the recipient of a Kennedy Center Honor, five Grammys, and dozens of international prizes. Stand Up Straight and Sing is an account of her inspiring life.
