Research is the key in The Game Of All Games (http://www.stiffs.com/enter/), and information is precious. Therefore, DO NOT blurt out anything you may have heard about a celebrity's health, or even the fact that a famous person is really old, UNLESS that info has appeared on stiffs.com's SickTicker, OR, you have seen or heard it yourself on CNN, ABC, CBS, MSNBC, Fox, AND the Drudge Report. When in doubt, shut the fuck up.

Please also refrain from making public the names of any write-in candidates that have not yet been approved by the Fame Committee. If you don't know what the Fame Committee is, see this immediately.

Be aware, too, that this forum is NOT the place to promote your own shitty dead pool.

One more rule: have fun.

Jazz & Pop Singer Keely Smith, Frequent Louis Prima Collaborator, Dies at 89

https://www.billboard.com/author/6103

Keely Smith, a pop and jazz singer known for her solo recordings of jazz standards as well as her musical partnership with Louis Prima, has died of apparent heart failure in Palm Springs, Calif. She was 89.

According to a news release from her publicist Bob Merlis, Smith was under a physician’s care when she died Saturday (Dec. 16).

Smith was born Dorothy Jacqueline Keely in Norfolk, Virginia on March 9, 1928, and was still a teenager when she began singing with Louis Prima's band.

She and Prima married in 1953, and together, they won a Grammy in 1959 for their hit "That Old Black Magic," which peaked at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Their songs "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön" and "I've Got You Under My Skin" also made the Hot 100 in 1959.

In 2001 -- 42 years later -- Smith was nominated for a Grammy for her album Keely Sings Sinatra.

During her seven-decade career, Smith was lauded by critics for her bold voice and ability to make the music swing, and she received several awards including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
