Goodbye to a Great Person and an Unforgettable Voice
Canadian contralto Maureen Forrester (1930 - 2010) died this past week at the age of seventy-nine.
Her voice was truly awesome:
I also loved her attitude.
In an excerpt from an older interview played on CBC radio this week, Forrester was asked about the many lucky breaks that had come her way. She replied that she had, indeed, had lucky breaks, but that she had trained for years and prepared herself to be ready for those breaks when they came along.
And, I believe, that's the secret to THE secret.
Goodbye to a Canadian who blessed the world with her amazing talent.
