I’m saddened by the news of the passing of legendary opera singer Jessye Norman. The Library Congress is the home of her papers where they will be preserved to inspire future generations. Tonight heaven has a new angel whose voice will echo through the clouds.
So sad to hear that the legendary #JessyeNorman has passed away. She attended the Women of the Year Lunch over 30yrs ago and her presence filled the room. #Icon #RIP @womenofyear pic.twitter.com/ImBiN3Cnpr

Rest In Peace dear goddess. Jessye Norman’s gift defied all categorization. Remembering her range from “Ariadne” to “Sweet Chariot”.
Carry her home.
