EARTHA KITT DEAD ON CHRISTMAS 2008 original singer of “Santa Baby”

In Feb 2006 I saw Eartha at an event on Broadway. When she exited the stage door I told Eartha I professed my love of her talent, thank her for coming to Philly and that I had seen her a show in a show at the Society Hill Sheraton in 1992, “It was a memorable night.” She purred where have you been for the past 10 years? (I snapped the picture at that moment)
Her first album, “RCA Victor Presents Eartha Kitt,” came out in 1954, featuring such songs as “I Want to Be Evil,””C’est Si Bon” and the saucy gold digger’s theme song “Santa Baby,” which is revived on radio each Christmas. (Here she is in 2006 performing at Washington DC’s lighting of the Christmas Tree)
