Most known for her lilting, androgynous timbre, Chapman released a string of iconic songs, including Fast Car, Talking 'Bout A Revolution, and Baby Can I Hold You Tonight.
From Wikipedia: "Chapman is widely regarded as a politically and socially active musician. In a 2009 interview with American radio network NPR, she is quoted as saying: "I'm approached by lots of organizations and lots of people who want me to support their various charitable efforts in some way. And I look at those requests and I basically try to do what I can. And I have certain interests of my own, generally an interest in human rights.""
