Eartha Kitt dies at 81

She was one of a kind. Ha, I thought about you when I read this. The video you posted featuring her the other day was really something.

Thanks for posting this Purron. I didn't know that she was sick. I've been listening to her music.

Ha

How fitting that one of her faithful fans was introducing others to her talent.

It gives me an odd feeling when a global talent dies at an old age. Almost like I've lost an old relative, or like another bit has faded into history.

of her many incredibly crooned numbers, eartha kitt sang one of my uncle's songs which he wrote during the depression, inspired by one of my uncle's sisters. it is recorded on one of her many "best of eartha kitt" albums. happens to be one of the songs i recently purchased for the digital frame i gave dad for his 80th birthday. (should i check to see if i collected any royalties on the sale?)

she had such a sexy voice. and no, i don't have a thing for older women.

Here's a pretty cool video of Eartha I found messin' around on the computer. It showcases her unique voice and style:
