Doris Day, who sang away “Que Sera, Sera” to people’s hearts, and acted her way to stardom in the Golden Age of Hollywood, breathed her last at 97, leaving fans and fraternity members ‘sentimental’ about her glorious ‘journey’.
The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed the legendary Hollywood star died early on Monday at her Carmel Valley home in California, telegraph.co.uk reported.
Day was surrounded by close friends and “had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia”.
Known as a honey-voiced singer who gave voice to timeless classics like “Whip crack away” and “Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps”, Day also carved a niche as an actress whose film dramas, musicals and comedies, including her debut film “Romance on the High Seas”, as well as “Calamity Jane”, “Pillow Talk” and “Love me or Leave Me”,.made her a top star in the 1950s and 1960s.
It was in Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller “The Man Who Knew Too Much”, that Day sang what is now an evergreen track “Que Sera, Sera… Whatever will be, will be”.
As it turned out, Day lived for the moment always.
Day turned 97 on April 3,
