As the queen of the bebop, Sarah Vaughan's popularity was unmatched for several decades. Her constantly evolving vocal style insured her a place in some of the world's greatest big bands. In her mature years, Vaughan proved singers merely get better with age. Sarah Vaughan: The Divine One showcases the legendary voice in concert. Championed by Billy Eckstine, Vaughan rose quickly through the jazz ranks. Her ability to manipulate a tune earned her a reputation as one of the finest musicians of the new bebop era. In this release, she performs many of the songs that brought her fame: "Misty," "Send in the Clowns," "I've Got a Crush on You," and "Someone to Watch Over Me." Sarah Vaughan: The Divine One also features footage of interviews with those that were closest to her.
