The Carnival is over ... :cry:

RIP to a beautiful lady with the voice of an angel from a member of a generation that had the privilege of growing up with the wonderful music that groups like The Seekers produced.
Another legend passes.

They'll never find another you.

While it is important to be able to laugh at oneself, it is equally important not to be armed with an overwhelming amount of material.

To the SOB who stole my anti-depressants - I hope you're happy now!

One of the best, if not THE best, female vocalists to have ever graced this world with her presence. May she rest in peace knowing that she brought great joy to millions of people with her golden voice.

The proof of the strength and clarity of her voice is seen in the distance that she is from the microphone. Quite amazing. Even in her latter years.

Apparently they also paid for that boat trip by performing every night. Just listen to this beautiful song and the power of her voice, and her genuine smile of appreciation for the applause at the end of the song:

I also grew up in that generation that listened to her music in my parents home. Sad that such a voice has gone silent.
