Video: Eva Cassidy's 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow'

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

An amazing version if you've never heard it before.  Eva Cassidy was little known until after her death at 33 of skin cancer.  By random chance her version of this was played on the BBC and folks went wild. Then, I think this actual video was played on another BBC TV show, and her international fame was sealed. From what I can glean from Wikipedia, this video, below, was taken at Blues Alley in DC in January of 1996, the same year that she died (I believe it's the same video shown by the BBC).  Seriously, watch this video.
