2008

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 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.

Makeba fell ill after a concert against organized crime in the southern Italian town of Baia Verde late Sunday, her publicist said. She collapsed on stage Sunday night after singing one of her most famous hits "Pata Pata". She died after being rushed to a clinic in the town of Castel Volturno.

She died just how she wanted to — singing on stage for a good cause.
