Others on Sarah McLachlan

  • "Sarah McLachlan is not only one of today's most gifted singer-songwriters, she is also a visionary in the music industry," Governor Pataki said. "Like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, who penned the Declaration of Sentiments and laid the foundation for womens rights, Sarah McLachlan created a stage to showcase female performers and opened the doors for many up and coming female artists."
