#Fact
1One of her "star pupils" was a young musician by the name of Richard Smallwood who went on to become one of the most celebrated name's in gospel music.
2Originally, she wanted to be a concert pianist.
3Her song, "Killing Me Softly" (1969), was a tribute to "American Pie" singer Don McLean. It was first recorded by folk singer/songwriter Lori Lieberman, who saw Don McLean in concert and wrote a poem based on her experience. The songwriting team of Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox turned Lori's poem into a song. Lori's original was followed in order by versions by Anne Murray, Bobby Goldsboro and Perry Como, all three of which predated Flack's recording. Roberta was on a plane when she happened to listen to Lori Lieberman's original version of the song, and knew she wanted to record it when she landed. Then, it was released as a single and it became a smash hit.
4Mentioned in the song "My Lovely Man" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
5In 1973, there were press reports that Flack was going to star in a film biography of blues singer Bessie Smith, with a script by Lonne Elder III, to be directed by Gordon Parks. The film was never made.
6Member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
7Ranked #45 on VH1's Greatest Women of Rock N Roll
8She sang the theme song to the popular television series Valerie (1986), later called "The Hogan Family", entitled "Together Through the Years". This song sung by Flack was used for the show's entire six year run (1986-1991)
9Her song, "Killing Me Softly" (1973), was a tribute to American Pie singer Don McLean.
10Her song "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", was included on the jazz-tinged soundtrack for Clint Eastwood's 1971 film titled Play Misty for Me (1971).
11After Donny Hathaway committed suicide in 1979, she started touring with Peabo Bryson in 1980, scoring a hit duet: "Tonight, I Celebrate My Love" (1983).
12She sang popular duets with Howard University classmate, Donny Hathaway: 'Where Is The Love?' (1972), 'The Closer I Get To You' (1978), 'You Are My Heaven' (1980) and 'Come Ye Disconsolate.'
13After a period of student teaching, she was discovered singing and playing jazz in a Washington nightclub by pianist Les McCann, who recommended her talents to Atlantic Records, in the late 1960s.
14She graduated from Howard University with a BA in Music.
15She was the daughter of a church organist (her father) and started playng piano early enough to get a music scholarship to Howard University.
16She was born into a musical family.
17She is known as a singer of soulful jazz and pop ballads.

#Quote
1Women have to do twice the work of male rock singers such as The Rolling Stones. We have to sing, play instruments and get accustomed to walking out on stage in high heels. Never mind the pressures of your image. If something goes wrong on my stage in any way, from sound to style, nobody can blame a band member. It's Roberta Flack who gets the rap and looks bad! I'm the one on the bill alone, with no gang of boys or crew behind me.

#Trademark
1Lengthy recordings of songs that tend to run 5 minutes or more
2Smooth silky soulful voice
