Judy Collins (b. 1939) is a highly acclaimed and veteran folk/pop singer-songwriter with a sweet, crystal clear soprano who became famous beginning in the late 1960s. Best known for her smash rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" (1968), her many signature songs also include her luminous interpretation of the spiritual, "Amazing Grace" (1970), plus such hits as "Cook With Honey" (1973) and "Send In The Clowns" (1977, from the Broadway musical, "A Little Night Music").
Born in Seattle, Washington and raised in Denver, Colorado, Collins began as a classical piano child prodigy before eventually turning to folk music in her teens. In addition to folk and pop, she has also covered a wide variety of other genres over her long career that include country, show tunes, and rock. Her numerous honors and accolades include a Grammy for "Both Sides Now" and an Oscar nomination for directing the documentary, "Antonia: A Portrait Of The Woman" (1975). In 2017, her rendition of "Amazing Grace" was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Recording Registry. Judy Collins has continued to perform and record actively to the present day.
