This amazing entertainer was an American jazz singer who was said to have "one of the most wondrous voices of the 20th Century." Sarah was a four-time Grammy Award winner including a "Lifetime Achievement Award." In 1989 the Natlonal Endowment for the Arts presented her with the NEA Jazz Masters Award which is considered the highest honor in jazz.


Vaughan's father was a carpenter who played guitar and piano, and her mother sang in the church choir. Sarah developed an aptitude for music at a young age and soon was singing at church and doing local performances. In 1942 at age 18 she won a contest at New York's famous Apollo Theater, and in the spring of 1942 she opened the Elia Fitzgerald at the Apollo. She was on the road to becoming a legend.
