Live Music: Dee Alexander Pays Tribute to Legendary Jazz Singer Sarah Vaughan

Sarah Vaughan is one of the great American jazz vocalists of all time. Many called her “The Divine One,” and she was known for her incredible range, vocal gymnastics and biting wit.

On Friday, Dee Alexander and two other jazz singers will pay tribute to Vaughan at Symphony Center.

Alexander is a Chicago-based singer, composer and member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. She joins the Morning Shift for a live performance honoring Sarah Vaughan and talk about Vaughan’s influence on her work.
