The soprano died from septic shock and multi-organ failure secondary to complications of a spinal cord injury she had sustained in 2015, according to family statement issued to the Associated Press.

"We are so proud of Jessye's musical achievements and the inspiration that she provided to audiences around the world that will continue to be a source of joy. We are equally proud of her humanitarian endeavors addressing matters such as hunger, homelessness, youth development, and arts and culture education," the family statement read.


Quote:
Norman won four Grammy Awards over her long career and won the Life Achievement Award in 2006. She was also bestowed many honors, including the Légion d'honneur, the Kennedy Center Honors, and National Media of the Arts. She received the 12th Glenn Gould Prize for her contribution to opera and the arts in 2018.

She was also a philanthropist, contributing to many causes dear to heart, including music and homeless programs, and AIDS research.

Jessye Norman possessed one of the most opulent and legendary voices of all time.

When asked by an interviewer in Germany how she would characterize her voice, she replied, "Pigeonholes are only comfortable for pigeons."
