Everyone is well aware of Cass's charm,wit, humor and talent. My question is, was there any point in time in her childhood, where either her friends/family became aware of her uncanny gifts that later propelled Her into such endearing stardom, that continues to this day? If so, at what age was this apparent? Does anybody know?
thanks for any info you may have!

Hey Guys,

After re-reading Eddie Fiegels Bio (Again) it seems like Cass was the one who was telling everyone how famous she would be one day, the beauty of it is, is that when she said it, people believed her!

Why Wouldn't they?

Cheers,
Adam

A number of years ago I spoke with an elderly lady who had lived upstairs from the Cohens when "Ellie" was a small child when they lived in Washington D.C. She had fond memories of a 5 or 6 year old Ellie coming upstairs to her apartment and being very precocious--rather a performer, even at that age.

thanks for the thoughtful insight. In that case it most apparent that she had the intelligence and imagination to impress whomever she came into contact with,even at such a tender age.No doubt honing the skills that she possessed to later convert audiences into generations of fans. Quite compelling, really.
All this thinking has made me tired, so I think I'm going to take a nap.
Thanks to all who responded

In the VH1 Behind the Music episode of the M's and P's, Leah Kunkel (Cass's younger sister, for those who don't know, and a wonderful singer in her own right), said, "Cass was a star. She was a star from the time she was two-years-old. She'd be entertaining on the bus." LOL I can just imagine young Ellie Cohen doing exactly that. Hahaha.

I agree, Kim. This was a soul who, from the beginning, did exactly as she was supposed to do.
