A collection of performances by three great women singers of the 20th century -- Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, and Chaka Khan. Sarah Vaughan, who, began her career in the 1940s, is seen during the mid-80s in a rare live performance, appearing comfortable, humorous and singing beautifully several of her classic songs including "Misty" and "Send In The Clowns." This 1993 live performance at Blues Alley in Washington, D.C. has never been seen before. Nancy performs many of her classic hits including "Guess Who I Saw Today." Chaka Khan is musically capable of stretching from funk and soul to jazz. A multi-Grammy winner, she is seen and heard moving into straight away jazz vocalizing in this performance taped in 1993 at the Blue Note in New York
