Beautiful rendition of Ivan Lin’s & Vitor Martins song Começar de Novo (Starting Over) with english lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman that would become “The Island”.

To me this was the most exquisite cover of this song ever done.
Some of the most ultimate singers did it from Ella Fitzgerald to Sinatra but yet even they couldn’t touch “Sassy’s” rendition. No one could.

More like a Brilliant Vibrato Virtuoso.
It doesn’t get any better than this.
