Update Eartha Kitt Follow

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: January 17, 1927 | Died: December 25, 2008

EARTHA KITT was an international star who gave new meaning to the word versatile. She distinguished herself in film, theater, cabaret, music and on television. Miss Kitt is one of only a handful of performers to be nominated for a Tony (three times), the Grammy (twice), and Emmy Award (twice). She regularly enthralls New York nightclub audiences during her extended stays at The Cafe Carlyle and these intimate performances have been captured in her newest recording, Eartha Kitt, Live at The Carlyle.

Miss Kitt’s distinctive voice has enthralled an entirely new generation of fans. Young fans loved her as YZMA, the villain, in Disney’s animated feature The Emperor's Groove, (2001 Annie Award for Best Vocal Performance / Animated Feature). Miss Kitt was also featured in the sequel, The Emperor's New Groove II and reprised the role in the popular Saturday morning animated series The Emperor’s New School (2007 Emmy Award for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program and 2007 Annie Award for Best Vocal Performance in an Animated Television Production).
