Eddie Fisher, R. I. P.

'50s Pop Singer Eddie Fisher Dies At Age 82 - Entertainment News Story - KPTV Portland: "Pop singer Eddie Fisher, whose clear voice brought him a devoted following of teenage girls in the early 1950s before marriage scandals overshadowed his fame, has died at age 82.

He passed away Wednesday night at his home in Berkeley of complications from hip surgery, his daughter, Tricia Leigh Fisher of Los Angeles, told The Associated Press.

'Late last evening the world lost a true America icon,' Fisher's family said in a statement released by publicist British Reece. 'One of the greatest voices of the century passed away. He was an extraordinary talent and a true mensch.'"

That's the same tune as Sam Cooke's Win Your Love (For Me).

Close enough for a lawsuit?
