It had become something of tradition at Christmas time for some of us in the local Phoenix community to participate in a presentation of the play, "A Christmas Carol." I had a very small bit part. Stevie (who was born in Phoenix) also appoeared in the play. I had a chance to say hi to her during rehearsal. She was very pleasant, friendly, relaxed and unassuming. I was surprised how petite she was but that, of course, has never gotten in the way of her ability to belt out great songs during the course of her amazing career.
Watching her perform with Tom Petty in the OP's linked video, I was reminded again of what a voice she has and how gracefully she moves. No wonder Tom liked her. :)
Speaking of Stevie and Tom memories, here's some more.
