Though not a household name in America, jazz-pop vocalist Susannah McCorkle has released 17 albums during her 20-year career which have earned international critical acclaim. McCorkle's repertoire of over 3,000 songs has helped keep the music of such songwriters/composers as George Gershwin, Antonio Carlos Jobim, and Johnny Mercer alive in cabarets and on concert stages around the world. For a person whose original intention was to be a simultaneous language interpreter for the Common Market in Brussels, utilizing her skills in German, Spanish, French, and Italian, McCorkle instead decided to begin a singing career and move to London. McCorkle discovered jazz for the first time after moving to Europe in 1970. The American singer, Billie Holiday, made a particularly strong impact on McCorkle. When she heard the recordings of the blues and jazz giant, McCorkle was inspired enough to follow her own dream of singing.
