Fugees. Flack. Lieberman? The wonderfully talented yet woefully unheralded singer-songwriter Lori Lieberman explains how she conceived, co-wrote and was the first to record the '70s (and '90s) classic "Killing Me Softly With His Song" — without ever getting a songwriting credit, and while under the thumb of a domineering management team that tried to suppress her story and her career. In this interview, Lori and I talk about her early years as a recording and touring artist in the '70s, her return to what is now a thriving music career after a long time away, and her extraordinary voice, which, after many years in the shadows, is finally being heard.
