I think one of the biggest blessings I have received was when I got to see Cesaria Evora in concert at UCLA's Royce Hall in 2010. Her voice sounded as lovely as the recordings or even lovelier. I don't remember what she wore but I do remember that she was barefoot. She took a cigarette break onstage also. I don't like smoking but I thought, "what a great lady." Nothing seemed affected, she was so natural.
