    Melissa Manchester is one of the finest singers and songwriters of the 20th century and is consistently underrated. She's too good--that's why. What can't she do? Her voice is so big and full and rich. Her songs are so powerful and emotional, that, really, I think record companies thought to themselves: "What is she, Broadway? Cabaret? I don't get it." So they tried to force her into a pop songbird, which she could do beautifully as well. Fabulous wonderful singer, full of life, love and music, a spirt shining with magical talent that I hope others can discover and appreciate. You are loved Melissa!
