Great nat.voice..Too small for Verdi,except set lyric arias.Not audible in
ensembles and with loud tenors.

Became a caricature in many ways,despite natural fabulous voice.....Cannot
accept her fame as much as I want to.

Could sing fabulous Vissi d'arte followed by hilarious unvocal "My man's
gone now."

No one told her she often sounded like a  laughabletake-off on
pop(Melancholy Baby)...Renee does the same thing w.Pop music.
