"This is aterrific read for anyone who loves opera and classical music, but it is also the story of a compelling and uniquely American journey." -AARP.org "Norman is a storyteller, and "Stand Up Straight and Sing!" unfolds the life of a conscientious artist who prominently meshes with the history of her times." -"Santa Barbara Independent" "[It] is this memoir'slife-affirming richness that most readers will take away - its hard-won wisdom and magnanimity." -"The Augusta Chronicle" "The best parts of Ms. Norman's book are her lyrical evocations of her early life in Augusta, Ga. She builds a rich portrait of a childhood firmly grounded by family, church and community." -"The Wall Street Journal" "Raised in Augusta, Georgia, a child of the Jim Crow and civil rights era, Grammy-winning, international opera singer Norman offers a broad and global perspective on life, the arts, and spirituality. Encouraged at an early age, she recalls playing on her grandmother's pedal organ, listening to her mother and grandmother sing spirituals, and taking to heart her mother's admonition to "stand up straight" while reciting and singing. She recalls a long line of ancestors and the tight-knit community who encouraged her to go beyond the limitations of race and sex. Surrounded by music, from gospel to jazz to classical, and inspired by Marian Anderson, she started singing in church. Her talent was later nurtured at Howard University, and she went on to a career singing at the Berlin Opera and the Metropolitan Opera. Looking back on her life, she marvels at her long journey from the segregated South to a dazzling career in the arts. Norman recalls memorable performances and observations on the power of beautiful music to "enter the spirit and simply live there." Her inspiring memoir includes lyrics of her favorite songs."

Reseña del editor:

One of America's most admired and decorated artists tells her amazing story, from her childhood in the South to the world's greatest stages.

Jessye Norman is not only one of the world's most admired and beloved singers, she is an American icon whose life story is as moving and dramatic as the great operatic roles she has performed on stage.

Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, nurtured in a close family and tight-knit community centered around the church, she studied the piano and sang the songs of her childhood, not dreaming that this passion for music might lead to her life's profession.

In Stand Up Straight and Sing!, Jessye Norman recalls in rich detail the strong women who were her role models, from her ancestors to family friends, relatives, and teachers. She hails the importance of her parents in her early learning and experiences in the arts. And she describes coming face-to-face with racism, not just as a child living in the segregated South, but also as an adult out and about in the world.
She speaks of the many who have inspired her and taught her essential life lessons. A special interlude on her key relationship with the pioneering African American singer Marian Anderson reveals the lifelong support that this great predecessor provided through her example of dignity and grace at all times.

The story of one woman’s astonishing life, Stand Up Straight And Sing! is not just for lovers of music, but for everyone.
