Biography

Eva Marie Cassidy (February 2, 1963 in Washington, DC – November 2, 1996 in Bowie, Maryland) was an American vocalist described by the British newspaper The Guardian as "one of the greatest voices of her generation." She had a diverse repertoire of jazz, blues, folk, gospel and pop. Cassidy remained virtually unknown outside of her native Washington, DC, when she died of melanoma (which had spread to her bones) in 1996. Her posthumously released recordings have since sold in excess of four million copies, and in early 2001 the compilation album Songbird reached #1 on the UK album charts.

    Lyrics
    You'll remember me when the west wind moves
    Among the fields of the barley
    You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
    When we walked in fields of gold
    So she took her love for to gaze awhile

    Lyrics
    Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
    In the land that I heard of once, once in a lullaby.
    Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
    And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.
    Someday I'll wish upon a star,
