Leontyne Price

Born in Mississippi before the Civil Rights movement was even a whisper, Price's talent transcended race and geography. The singer, who has been decorated with a number of Presidential Medals and 18 Grammy Awards, won her first and only Emmy Award in 1982 for her performance with the New York Philharmonic on Live From the Lincoln Center.
