Legendary performance of Over The Rainbow by Eva Cassidy!
Eva Cassidy was an American vocalist who didn’t reach fame until five years after she passed away.
An amateur recording of Eva playing Over The Rainbow in her local pub was played on Top of the Pops 2, a TV show in the UK.
The producer, Mark Hagen, was having doubts about playing it on air due to the video’s poor quality and amateur style of recording but took the risk by airing it on December 13, 2000.
The video had a phenomenal reaction from viewers. People were bombarding the studio with calls about the song, trying to find out more information about the unknown Eva Cassidy who sadly was no longer with us.
