Once in a lifetime talent.
All of these describe Ms. Cicely Tyson, who has passed away at the age of 96.
I am not heartbroken.
She has been a wonder.
The first time I remember Cicely Tyson was ‘The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman.’
I have watched so many of her performances over the years. Everything I watched, she was always the standout in the piece, even if the piece itself wasn’t the highest of quality.
Cicely Tyson, IMO, could not give a bad performance. Just impossible.
Her voice. Her very being on stage was searing.
She touched your soul.
She lived her life her way. She got her roses while still alive. She knows that she was adored and worshipped.
And, her work. Her craftmanship. Will live on.
Rest In Power, Ms. Tyson.
Thank you, for sharing your talent with the world.
