Waters was a singular performer who conquered Broadway, nightclubs, movies, television and radio. At one time, she was the highest-paid entertainer on Broadway. She was a major player in the introduction of jazz to a broader American market, but her influence on the very nature of jazz itself cannot be overstated."
