@last.fm : In 1963, her performance of We Shall Overcome at the Lincoln Memorial just prior to Dr. King’s famous I Have A Dream… speech helped confirm the song as the Civil Rights anthem.

@Discogs : Her soprano voice, three-octave range and distinct, rapid vibrato has led to appearances on classical, jazz, and soundtrack recordings, most notably her numerous and highly acclaimed collaborations with soundtrack writer Ennio Morricone.
