Wow! So deeply sad! This woman was just one of my favorite singers as a kid, just a beautiful and nostalgic voice, one of a kind she definitely led the life was larger than life, maybe not a household name mainstream but in the Bossa Nova, Jazz world, she was just fantastic. Will without a doubt miss her soothing voice. Thank you for the many great memories Mrs. Gilberto.

RIP. Had no idea who the original singer was. But I would think nearly everyone on this planet would recognize that melody.
