Legendary Broadway star Carol Channing has died, her publicist, Harlan Boll, told CNN on Tuesday.

She was 97.

With her raspy voice and huge smile, Channing was best known for her Tony Award-winning role as Dolly Levi in the hit Broadway musical "Hello Dolly!"


Quote:
After a brief stint in college, Channing moved to New York, where she made her stage debut in "Never Take No for an Answer" and was an understudy in "Let's Face It."

But her role as the diamond-loving showgirl Lorelei Lee in the Broadway musical "Gentleman Prefer Blondes" in 1949 made her a star. Channing lost out on the role in the 1953 film adaptation to Marilyn Monroe.


Quote:
She won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Academy Award for the role of Muzzy Van Hossmere in the 1967 movie musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie." The film would forever have Channing identified with the now iconic line "Raspberries!"

Channing also became a darling on the small screen, appearing on TV quiz shows and other programs including "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," "The Love Boat," "Touched by an Angel" and "Family Guy."

The actress was married four times: to writer Theodore Naidish, Canadian football player Alex Carson, her manager and publicist Charles Lowe, and childhood sweetheart Harry Kullijian.

R.I.P., Carol!

She also performed in the Super Bowl VI Halftime Show in January 1972 in New Orleans, along with Al Hirt, Ella Fitzgerald, and the U.S. Marine Corps Drill Team as part of their "Salute to Louis Armstrong". Those were the days when the Super Bowl Halftime Shows were done by marching bands, middle-of-the-road acts, and were centered around a theme, instead of the A-list music stars you see nowadays.
