Actress-Singer Barbara McNair Dies
By JACOB ADELMAN
Associated Press Writer

Singer Barbara McNair, who became a film and television star in an era when such opportunities were opening up for black women, has died, her sister said. She was 72.
McNair died Sunday after a battle with throat cancer in Los Angeles, sister Jacqueline Gaither said.
"She was very family oriented," Gaither said. "She was more than just a star or a famous personality. She was a person of her own."
McNair made her Hollywood acting debut in 1968 in the film, "If He Hollers, Let Him Go."
She later starred opposite Sydney Poitier in "They Call Me Mister Tibbs" and with Elvis Presley in "Change of Habit."
She hosted television's "The Barbara McNair Show," a musical and comedy program in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As a singer, one of her biggest hits was "You Could Never Love Him."

Thanks Zey, I was just checking to see if that had been posted yet- Gosh she sure looked good to be older than I am when she did Change of Habit and the tv show!
She was a good actress and she had such pretty eyes! wjh

How sad she did a very Good Part in Change of Habit, I can't remember now if I have on a video or what but someone interviewed Barbara about how it was to be in a Movie with Elvis. She said he was such a Gentlemen, and so well Mannered. FairyTale!

I really liked her. This is sad news, but she has found release from physical suffering and enjoying freedom from this troulesome body......
