She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit Christmas song "Santa Baby"
In 1984, she returned to the music charts with a disco Hi-HRG song, "Where Is My Man", the first certified gold record of her career. "Where Is My Man" reached the Top 40 on the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #36; The song also made the Top 10 on the US Billboard dance chart, where it reached #7. The single was followed by the album I Love Men on the Record Shack label. Kitt found new audiences in nightclubs across the UK and the US, including a whole new generation of gay male fans, and she responded by frequently giving benefit performances in support of HIV/AIDS organizations. Her 1989 follow-up hit "Cha-Cha Heels" (featuring Bronski Beat), which was originally intended to be recorded by Divine, received a positive response from UK dance clubs and reached #32 in the charts in that country.
The Legendary Eartha Kitt died from cancer on Christmas Day, 2008 at her Weston, Connecticut, home.
