At one point in her stellar career Sarah Vaughan told her dear friend, Billy Eckstine, that she wanted to be as popular as Tom Jones. She wanted #1 hits and the kind of mega stardom Tom Jones had. Billy, wisely, reminded her that in her career she sold out large concert halls, sold millions of records and had so many fans.
Bill Eckstine, a musician himself, told her that hit records and mega popularity were for the moment. A career like Sarah’s was for a lifetime. Sarah Vaughan left a legacy. Her music will last forever.
