Images from the career of American soprano Leontyne Price (b. 1927). Her contributions to the operatic stage--from "Porgy and Bess" to "Aida," concert song performance--from works by Samuel Barber to Negro spirituals, recordings (earning 18 Grammy awards), and television--where her lead role in NBC's production of Puccini's "Tosca" made her the first African American to sing in an opera telecast--still ripple throughout the world of Classical music and influence those who follow.
