Gabriela Montero: Improvising in the Stars

In Sing It and Wing It, a Performance Today listener calls in with a song to sing, and pianist Gabriela Montero creates her own improvisation on the spot. This time, host Fred Child welcomes Elaine Scott from Richmond, Virginia. Her two favorite singers are Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter. She recalls the time that she met with Carter back stage after a performance. One of the songs from Carter's concert that stuck with her was "So Many Stars," a song that Vaughan had made famous.
