Blind Soprano Laurie Rubin: Seeing Through MusicDownload audio (MP3)
When opera singer Laurie Rubin takes the stage, she stares straight into the audience -- even though she can't see a single person. Rubin has been blind since birth, and spent years being told she'd never live on her own or hold a real job. Today, the internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano performs around the world. She also founded her own jewelry line and camp for young musicians. Rubin joins us to talk about her book, "Do You Dream in Color?" and about navigating the opera world as a blind, openly gay woman.
Host: Michael Krasny
