I wouldn't recognize her if I saw her, but I could pick her singing voice out.  It was beautiful, and she made so many stars sound amazing.

This happened ALMOST A WEEK AGO WHERE WERE YOU!?

I will always remember her as the host of the Seattle area kids' TV show she hosted in the late 70s and early 80s called Boomerang.

That is an awesome share JS.  Thanks for that!

She was like our own Julia Andrews.
