Musical Deaths 2019:
Rest peacefully my Brothers !
 The ultimate connection is between a performer and its' audience!
DORIS DAY  aged 97

complications from pneumonia:

actress, singer, philanthropist, animal welfare/rights campaigner

she released almost a 100 singles in her career including 5 that reached #1 on the Billboard charts,
she also released in excess of 30 studio albums and starred/appeared in countless movies of all genres
including romantic comedies, musicals and thrillers, she was a versatile actress and singer:
these stats make her a legitimate music star/icon IMO

some of her songs were novelty, others were serious
heres my favourite as a tribute to her:

A very sad farewell to Johnny Clegg - the whole nation will be in mourning - heartbroken. He had the ability to cross so many divides - one of the planet's really good, brave and beautiful souls - a true legend.

We knew this was inevitable, he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015 - he even went on tour while in remission, to say goodbye to his many fans, to acknowledge them, but it's still devastating news. I'm so glad there was tribute paid to him while he was with us and I'm sure he knew how beloved and respected he was - I hope so - he was a humble guy - never got above himself. Thoughts with his family - he's made his crossing and may he rest in peace. 

That tribute - musos from all over South Africa - from all walks of life and genres, including his son, Jesse, and a few more beside -

"The Crossing" or Osiyeza ... 

"The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us." ~ Bill Watterson
A great loss. Pure genius. Glad you posted the stereo version as opposed to the mono one. Makes a huge difference. If ever there was a unique artist in the musical world he was it. RIP Johnny Clegg. The world is a poorer place without you.

oh look, J-Man is back......welcome back dude Smile

I don't know anything about Clegg but I know that song The Crossing, its brilliant,
vaguely remember the guy touring Australia some time ago also...
