Eartha Kitt RIP


Eartha Kitt passed away Christmas Day after a long battle with colon cancer. The singer, actress and star of Broadway was 81. She was one of the stage’s most seductive entertainers whose trademark purr eventually landed her the role of Catwoman in the 1960s “Batman” TV series, for which she is known by many baby boomers. She recorded the original hit version of the Christmas classic, “Santa Baby,” and in her career spanning nearly six decades, she was nominated for numerous Grammys, Emmys and Tonys. We have truly lost of the great ones. Miss Kitt will be missed.
