This is the first Who¡¦s Who that deals with the world of divas, ultimate singers, musicians, entertainers, Jazz, Cabaret, and Entertainment. It should serve as reference for performers, promoters, publicists, booking agents, venue owners, students, schools, libraries, and music industry executives, as well as the general public. Although it is based upon rigid fact and data, found in or supplied by reliable sources, including those who are written up in this book, personal feelings and material were added. To accomplish this, the world of the artist that is not usually seen on stage or behind the mic was probed. Sometimes candid and personal stories, anecdotes, and intimate statements were either provided directly by the artist or told by friends and peers. After all, this is a world of enchantment, glamour, and fun ¡V and so it cannot be treated like a mathematical formula! In traditional who¡¦s who books, those listed are usually figures well known to the public or in their own field.
