Eva Cassidy – Somewhere Over The Rainbow video

Tonight the Strathmore pays tribute to Eva Cassidy, the hugely popular singer who was taken by melanoma back in 1996. She performed regularly throughout the DC area, but became widely known only after her death. She even made an album with the Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown, and her passing affected him greatly. The performer lineup tonight includes Strathmore Resident Artist Mary Alouette. Check out this video of Eva performing Somewhere Over The Rainbow at Blues Alley.
