Jazz singer Barbara Morrison
has known highs and lows in her long career, the joy of making music with the all-time greats, and the devastating pain of diabetes. A professional musician who spends 150-200 nights a year on the road, Morrison helps her students at UCLA to balance their career dreams with the physical toll performance can take.
