Eartha Kitt died 2008_12_25
Andrew Freedman says Kitt died Thursday of colon cancer and was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York.
Kitt, a self-proclaimed "sex kitten" famous for her catlike purr, was one of America's most versatile performers, winning two Emmys and getting a third nomination. She also was nominated for two Tony Awards and a Grammy.
A lot of info will be found on the internet the next days so I simply do a repost of my article 2007_01_27....
Eartha Kitt was born 1927_01_27, so today she will be celebrating her 80th birthday.
She's one of those special singers of the 50's and early 60's I like.
Look at Eartha's homepage but also at Wikepedia you can find a lot of info and more links.
I'll never forget her 'unique style' (and appearances) as one can hear in songs like My Heart Belongs To Daddy, Just An Old Fashioned Girl and Uskudar'a.
She's still active in the entertainment bussines.
From October to early December 2006, Eartha Kitt co-starred in the Off-Broadway musical Mimi Le Duck. She has a role in the movie "Somebody Like You", due out in 2007, and is voicing the character of Fossa in the animated movie "Madagascar 2", due out in 2008.
So I wonder if she has enough time for her grandchildren.
I hope so : (grand)children are the niciest gift !!
I bought this CD a few years ago second hand for only Euro 1.5. A few tracks skipped a little bit but I think I repaired them nicely.
In my younger years she had the sexiest voice I had heard. She was great,
