Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Vaughan was an American jazz singer born on March 27, 1924. She grew up with a love of music and performing and started learning to play piano at an early age (also her mother sang in a church choir and father played guitar and piano). Winning a talent competition held at Harlem’s Apollo Theater in 1942 is said to have launched her singing career. She initially worked with big bands and orchestra’s before embarking on a solo career.

Throughout her career, Vaughan was recognised as a gifted singer and performer. She was invited to perform at the White House and at venues like Carnegie Hall, was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Grammy in 1989 and was selected to join the Jazz Hall of Fame in 1990. She also received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
