Leontyne Price
- She was the first African-American singer leader at the Metropolitan Opera.
- She is a talented and softly voiced soprano who has been participating in many of the major opera presentations in the US and across the globe.
- Across the board, she is considered as the "voice of the Century" by the best critics in varies countries.
- I recommend anyone who wants to see, and moreover, listen to her voice to go YouTube and watch some of her videos over there. She is amazingly powered and softly at the same time.
