Paula Cole performs "I Don't Want to Wait." (ABC7)

One of the most defining voices of the nineties, singer-songwriter Paula Cole did something quite unheard of after winning the Grammy for Best New Artist: she stepped away from the industry for eight years. Her story is a fascinating and cautionary tale of success for any aspiring artist. Fortunately for fans, Paula reemerged with several independent albums, including her latest collection, “Ballads." She discussed her 20+ years in music before performing her timeless hit, "I Don't Want to Wait."
