Legendary Actress Della Reese Dies at 86

Singer-turned television star Della Reese passed away Sunday night at her California home. She was 86 years old.


Actress Roma Downey, Reese’s co-star on Touched By an Angel, said in a statement to Variety, "She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and pastor, as well as an award-winning actress and singer. Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people. She was a mother to me and I had the privilege of working with her side by side for so many years on ‘Touched by an Angel.’ I know heaven has a brand-new angel this day. Della Reese will be forever in our hearts.”


In addition to memorable roles in television and films such as A Thin Line Between Love and Hate and Harlem Nights, Reese enjoyed an early career as a big-voiced jazz singer, accumulating four Grammy nominations before transitioning into television with the 1969 show Della, the first talk show hosted by an African-American woman.

Loved her in Touched by an Angel. Still play the theme song till date. She is a definition of age is nothing but a number and your skin colour cannot keep you down. A great blues singer, actress and a very inspirational and spiritual person. Sleep on dear Mama, sleep on...
