Symphonic Sunday .... The Legendary Kathleen Battle

I would pay anything to see Ms Battle perform live.  I have loved her voice for 25 years since I first heard her sing "Swing Low Sweet Chariot".  I had chills from her singing "Lovers" (still a song I return to often).  And I love how she sings "O mio babbino caro" by Puccini.

DUDE! If you have not seen Kathleen Battle perform with Vangelis and Jessye Norman, Mythodea, go right now to YOUTUBE and enjoy! My only problem is that the costumes they put those wonderful ladies in makes them look like Godzilla vs Mothra or something. Incredible music.

I love her too. My favorite performance is in "a Carnegie Hall Christmas" from the '90s.
