Just before the multi-Platinum artist, Eva Cassidy, died of melanoma at 33 known only to a small circle of friends in Washington DC, her friends raised money for a benefit for her. She was dying and in great pain but she took a lot of painkillers and made her way onto the stage to sing the last song she would sing in public. She chose this one. She gave the money they raised to children she had met in the cancer ward. Her story was one of the most popular shows ever on Nightline.
