This phenomenal woman pushed through barriers with the strength of her powerful, melodic voice. Since the age of 6, her family knew that she had a special gift/talent.

She was a member of New York City's Metropolitan Opera and even sang for the March on Washington in 1963. As we approach her birthday next week, let us take a moment to reflect on this legendary lady, Ms. Marion Anderson.
