Eva Cassidy: Timeless Voice (1 x 60′) – A documentary about singer Eva Cassidy that charts her discovery and posthumous rise to international fame. Eva Cassidy has sold 10 million records worldwide yet she died, in 1996, not knowing her voice would go on to cause a phenomenon in the entertainment industry and inspire a whole generation of female singers.
This film attempts to explain why the modern day music business, with all its marketing driven strategies, was turned on its head by the voice of a girl from small town Bowie in Washington DC.
It includes unseen original archive footage of Eva performing, and incorporates live performances and interviews from a range of contributors including Mick Fleewood, Katie Melua, Sir Terry Wogan, UK voice coach Carrie Grant and other broadcast journalists and music professionals who bring their own genuine insight into how and why Eva was discovered and went on to become a star after her untimely death.
