Describe your sister’s singing voice. What makes her a great singer?
Ann: Liz’s voice is like the light just after the sun rises when everything is awash in gold and even New York City looks brand new. Liz is Liz when she sings — nothing gets in the way of her soul. She always knows how to stand in front of an audience and tell the truth with complete freedom. She has something rarely heard in music today — sweetness. Somehow she has retained that beautiful quality that so many lose from the hard knocks in life, so you feel safe and renewed by her spirit when you hear her sing.
Liz: Her voice is like a very expensive whiskey — full-bodied, smoky and rich. She sings with so much emotion, so much heart. She also has an incredible ear for harmony. When we experiment with songs, you should hear the harmonies she comes up with. I don’t know how she does it.
