Barbara Morrison sings from the heart and the core


Listen to iFriendly audio.
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. Having lost the use of her legs, Morrison says she’s found a way to “sing from my core.” Morrison is a guest artist at this weekend’s Sitka Jazz Festival. With KCAW’s Holly Keen.
