ummm i had heard of Eva cassidy and knew what sadly happened to her so as you know knew what was coming, i found her early life interesting and that she felt really insecure in life you always imagine people to be very put going and living the pop star lifestyle although the actual death of Eva is so sad but the saddest is to read about all the fighting that has gone on within her family friends which would have been the last thing she wanted !!!
