Jessye Norman – Amazing Grace (Sidney Poitier Tribute) | 1995 Kennedy Center Honors

American opera singer and recitalist Jessye Norman delivers a powerful performance of “Amazing Grace” as a tribute to Bahamian-American actor and film director Sidney Poitier. A dramatic soprano, Norman was associated with roles such as Wagner’s Sieglinde, Ariadne by Richard Strauss, Gluck’s Alceste, Beethoven’s Leonore and both Cassandre and Dido in Les Troyens by Berlioz.
