rip eartha kitt

RIP Eartha Kitt who passed away today, on Christmas, of colon cancer. Kitt sang the most famous version of "santa baby" (my current ring tone) and was born in the cotton fields of south carolina. associated press says:
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.
here are two of my favorite tunes: "C'est Si Bon" (you can hear infamous purr around 1:47)

and "Too Close for Comfort"
