'Hello, Dolly' Star Carol Channing Dead at 97

Carol Channing, one of the most iconic actresses who owned Broadway when she starred in “Hello, Dolly!” … has died.

The actress passed at her home in Rancho Mirage, CA near Palm Springs early Tuesday AM.

Channing was not only a huge hit on B-Way, she was a movie star to boot. Her movie credits include “Thoroughly Modern Millie,” for which she was nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

BTW … she was the first featured solo artist to sing at a Super Bowl … Super Bowl IV back in ’70.

She’s a member of the Grammy Hall of Fame and snagged a Tony Lifetime Achievement Award.  Channing was also extremely active with the AIDS and Actors’ Fund.

Channing was hilarious, with a super distinctive voice that made her a favorite for TV talk shows.

Her rep says It is so very hard to see the final curtain lower on a woman who has been a daily part of my life for more than a third of it.  We supported each other, cried with each other, argued with each other, but always ended up laughing with each other.”

Carol was 97.

RIP
