My telephone interview with the two time Grammy Award Winning jazz vocalist Diane Schuur yesterday was supposed to last for 15 minutes. Intead it lasted for two hours. It was a great interview, and I got to know so much about her and her exciting career. She happenes to be totally blind.

She said that he was the only person her cat ever hid from. I truly enjoyed her song I'll be there, which she sang with Brian McKnight. It's not a rendition of the Michael Jackson version.
