    JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) -- Miriam Makeba, the South African singer who wooed the world with her sultry voice but was banned from her own country for more than 30 years under apartheid, died after collapsing on stage in Italy. She was 76.


    Over her career, Miriam Makeba sang with performers including Nina Simone, Harry Belafonte and Paul Simon.

    In her dazzling career, Makeba performed with musical legends from around the world -- jazz maestros Nina Simone and Dizzy Gillespie, Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon -- and sang for world leaders such as John F. Kennedy and Nelson Mandela.

    Amnat77,

    My beautiful friend, I had no idea of this, thank you for posting! Miriam will sorely be missed. Look, couldn't help but notice, her name is exactly the same as Aaron's, the biblical patriarch's sisters name.
