Eartha Kitt dies after cancer fight
(Thursday December 25, 2008)
Singer and actress Eartha Kitt has died of colon cancer at the age of 81, a family friend said.
The sultry singer, dancer and actress rose from the South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality.
Andrew Freedman said Kitt died on Christmas Day 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.
