Her legacy will be forever in those wonderful recordings. Now-a-days even 91 seems to young to leave this world. Thanks Millie for the great vocal performances.

One of those very relevant people in the Elvis story. Yes a great voice hitting those soprano notes, but my lasting memory of her is part of the entourage walking to the stage in the TTWII - Her star will continue to shine.

Very sad news. Millie passed away at a time of year when her beautiful voice is heard so many times over-and-over on Elvis' recording of "Blue Christmas". Millie worked with Elvis for the first time on his Christmas sessions in 1957.
