Iconic Singer Miriam Makeba Is Dead !
I have just come across quite some saddening news that the iconic South African Singer Miriam Makeba died yesterday night in Italy after a concert for Roberto Saviano, a writer threatened with death by the Mafia. The BBC link is here ....(Click).South African singer Miriam Makeba has died aged 76 after being taken ill near the southern Italian town of Caserta following a concert
SMiriam Makeba was the first black African woman to receive a Grammy Award which she shared with folk singer Harry Belafonte in 1965.I really loved her powerful voice and good songs such as Patapata...She was a great African voice with a great heart and concern and will be surely missed !
