Sass, clarity & a voice spinkled with angelic sweetness & goodness which comes from the pits of passion. Sarah Vaughn had sass, talent and something extra which we could never explain but is only known to her and her maker. Ella Fitzgerald called her “The world’s greatest singing talent”, which explains why one can hear Ella whisper through Vaughn’s formidable sound, they were both made of the same stuff.

About:

  • Born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1924
  • her father was an amateur guitarist and her laundress mother was a church vocalist.
  • She studied piano from the age of seven.
  • influenced many vocalists such as Anita Baker.

She’s a treasure and aught to be remembered.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE DAY: Jill Scott “Golden”

Is it her burgundy fro? Her smile that lights up a passageway as she sings a melodious existential tune about pride, self-love and responsibility, as many pass her by manoeuvring around her hurrying off to the next meeting? It could be the charm she exudes in her  striking yellow sweatshirt as she peddles on a bicycle without a care in the world, with  reassurance that life’s good. It’s everything. The throwback pics of her as a child and her sitting on the sea shore, wriggling her chubby toes in the sand with a flower placed neatly in her natural hair. This video somehow reminds me that despite all the deadlines and hustles and bustles of the world, everything will be alright.
