“Beverly Sills, the singer who did both during a storied career that spanned the swing and disco eras, died Monday night in her New York City home. She was 78”, E! News reports.
(H/T: Maggie’s Farm, which has a clip of Sills in The Barber of Seville.)
Update: Much more on Sills from Orrin Judd, who dubs her “the Un-Diva”.
