Recognized early as a musical prodigy, Scott was given scholarships from the age of eight to study at the Juilliard School. She began performing in a jazz band in her teens and was performing on radio at age 16. She was prominent as a jazz singer throughout the 1930s and 1940s. In 1950, she became the first black person to have a TV show, The Hazel Scott Show. Her career in America faltered after she testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee during the McCarthy era. Scott moved to Paris in the late 1950s, not returning to the United States until 1967 (source: Wikipedia). Free shipping on domestic orders $25 and over!
