HAPPY BIRTHDAY EARTHA

BornJanuary 17, 1927, North, SC

BIO
Singing in ten different languages, Miss Kitt performed in over 100 countries and was honored with a star on “The Hollywood Walk of Fame” in 1960. In 1966, she was nominated for an Emmy for her role in the series, “I Spy”. In 1968, Miss Kitt’s career took a sudden turn when, at a White House luncheon hosted by Lady Bird Johnson, she spoke out against the Vietnam War. For years afterward, Miss Kitt was blacklisted in the U.S. and was forced to work abroad where her status remained undiminished. In December 2006 she returned to Washington and lit the National Christmas Tree alongside President and Mrs. George W. Bush

In 1974, Miss Kitt returned to the United States, with a triumphant Carnegie Hall concert and, in 1978, received a second Tony nomination for her starring role in the musical, “Timbuktu.” Miss Kitt’s second autobiography, “Alone With Me”, was published in 1976 and “I’m Still Here: Confessions Of A Sex Kitten” was released in 1989. Her best-selling book on fitness and positive attitude,” Rejuvenate! (It’s Never Too Late)”, was released by Scribner in May 2001.
