Out of Jamaica: The Rare Voice of Sir Willard White

Sir Willard White is an opera singer with a story to tell: from Jamaica, to the Juilliard School, to a knighthood, and beyond. He is as commanding a speaker as he is a singer. With Jay, he talks about his growing up, the decision to sing, the sting of racism, and much more. He even does a little singing — including “Love Me Tender” and “Smile.”

    Just a side note Jay: that quote about Elvis is not true. In fact many of the black musicians and black technicians in the music industry have spoken often about his lack of prejudice. Maybe you can pass that on to Mr. White.
