RIP Eartha Kitt: One of the most sultry women who ever lived

Christmas is a little less merrier this year with the loss of Eartha Kitt, diva and legend.  She was the ultimate Catwoman.  I loved her in Boomerang playing Lady Eloise.  “Marcussss, Darlingggg!”  Too Funny.  Rest in Peace

Yahoo – Dec 25, 2008 – A family friend says Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died. She was 81.

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.

    I just recently discovered her. WWOZ New Orleans played a song she sang in Swahili, African Lullaby, and I just had to find out what it was. It’s a haunting song. She was amazing.

  2. She know she sang Santa Baby…that song is just so sultry and sweet.

    She was definitely talented and will truly be missed!
