Songbird brings together all the most memorable female singers of our time-from Aretha Franklin to Annie Lennox, Emmylou Harris to Eartha Kitt, Debbie Harry to Dinah Shore, along with dozens more. In a seemingly male-dominated industry, these women have fought long and hard for recognition and success. Songbird tells the story of their struggles and reveals many of the artistic connections between these performers. More than 150 rarely or never before seen portraits, vintage record covers, and concert shots evoke the glamour of their performances, the glitz of their stage personae, and the power of their voices.
An inspiring testament to the triumph of female singers, Songbird provides a playlist of favorite songs and albums that will introduce you to new performers and reaquaint you with some classic singers of the past.
