“Fleming’s voice was a combination of magic, agility and smooth cream. She backed it with an extraordinary humanity that audiences have long since fallen in love with. You feel her voice with a shiver. She is a fine singer-actor, too, and can work a crowd with the best of them.” – Toronto Star, 2016
