Sarah Vaughan commemorative stamp

The US Postal Service issued the Sarah Vaughan Forever® Stamp on March 29, 2016:

The musically inclined Sarah Vaughan (1924-1990) played piano, then organ, and finally realized her vocal talent singing in the church choir. Her voice ranged over three octaves, and she exercised control over it; swooping from high to low and back. Early in Vaughan’s career she toured with many of the great jazz musicians of the day, and incorporated some of their styles into her own. Later, she recorded both jazz and pop songs as a solo artist. Remarkably, her voice did not diminish with time; she sang with her signature interpretive power for the whole of her five-decade career.
