Jammin’ 105.7 and DJ Thump take today to honor the life and legacy of Marian Anderson!
She stunned the world with her amazing contralto singing voice. Although many would not let Anderson perform because of her race she would persevere and go on a 12 nation tour. Her tour was backed and supported by the Department of State and the American National Theater and Academy.
Anderson would go on to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Lifetime Achievement Award! She passed on April 8, 1993, at the age of 96.
