Barefoot Diva Cesaria Evora Has Passed Away

Cesaria Evora Passes

Grammy award-winning singer, Cesaria Evora, has passed away at the age of 70.

Known as the 'Barefoot Diva,' she won a Grammy in 2003 after introducing her African islands music to venues all over the world.

There isn't much know as to how and why she passed, but we do know she went while she died in the Baptista de Sousa Hospital in Mindelo, on her native island of Sao Vicente in Cape Verde. So we're glad she was home.

She hadn't been in the best of health for quite some time, having had open heart surgery just last year.

We extend our condolences — her music and voice were truly beautiful!
