Lifting My Voice: A Memoir
By Barbara Hendricks
Foreword by Kofi A. Annan

Barbara Hendricks grew up in the 1950s as an African-American woman in segregated Arkansas. She went on to graduate from the Juilliard School of Music, won a number of important international prizes, and began performing in recitals and operas throughout the world.

"When the lyric soprano Barbara Hendricks sings, the first word that comes to mind is not powerful but beautiful."  - New York Times

“Lifting My Voice is no simple-minded “Diva-Speak”- it’s a serious, thoughtful, and deeply insightful book on the meaning of being an artist and a morally conscious global citizen. [It’s] a noble undertaking and a totally absorbing read. Highly recommended.” - La Scena Musicale

"Fans of opera and vocal music will enjoy this absorbing narrative, as will anyone who likes to read about strong and accomplished women." - Library Journal
