Description
In this uplifting memoir, the acclaimed singer reflects "on life, the arts, and spirituality . . . Inspiring" (Booklist).

Jessye Norman is one of the world's most admired and beloved singers—and her life story is as moving and dramatic as the great operatic roles she has performed on stage.

Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, she studied the piano and sang the songs of her childhood, never dreaming that this passion for music might lead to her life's profession. Here she presents "a rich portrait of a childhood firmly grounded by family, church and community," and recalls in rich detail the strong women who were her role models, from her ancestors to family friends, relatives, and teachers (The Wall Street Journal). She also discusses her relationship with the pioneering African American singer Marian Anderson—revealing the lifelong support she provided through her example of dignity and grace at all times.

Norman also describes coming face-to-face with racism, both as a child living in the segregated South and as an adult out and about in the world. Filled with inspiration and wisdom, Stand Up Straight and Sing! is not just for lovers of music, but for everyone.
