Keely Smith, Jazz and Pop Singer, Dies at 89

Her hits included "Bei Mir Bist Du Schön" and "I've Got You Under My Skin." "That Old Black Magic," which she reprised with Kid Rock at the 2008 Grammy awards, made a big impression on pop culture: Kermit the frog, wearing a wig, performed as Smith on the early Muppets show "Sam and Friends," singing "That Old Black Magic." Keely Smith and Louis Prima also performed the hit at John F. Kennedy's inauguration.

Keely Smith and Louis Prima won a Grammy in 1959 - the first year the awards were handed out - for best pop vocal performance by a duo or group for their hit "That Old Black Magic," which remained on the charts for 18 weeks.

In 2001 - 42 years later - Smith was nominated for a Grammy for her album "Keely Sings Sinatra."

Standing to one side, her impassive basilisk stare part of the act, the singer Keely Smith, who has died aged 89, excelled as the onstage foil to her extrovert husband, the trumpeter-vocalist Louis Prima. Where Prima was manic, cavorting around the stage, singing with gusto and playing hot jazz trumpet, Smith was the epitome of cool, her vocals like a balm amid all the mayhem.
