The origin of Flack's hit "Killing Me Softly With His Song"
Roberta Flack discovered Lori Lieberman's "Killing Me Softly With His Song" on a plane from L.A. to New York, and made it her own. "I was not limited to just taking the song off of the page of music," said Flack. After seeing the crowd reaction to her cover of the song while on tour with Quincy Jones, Jones convinced her to record it.
Clint Eastwood loved Roberta Flack's song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."
Roberta Flack performed with all of that soulful "getting-toggetherness."
