The legendary R&B singer and actress Della Reese has passed away at the age of 86. It is hard to boil her 6 decade career down to one thing she was best known for, perhaps it was her hit “Don’t you know,” perhaps it was her role as one of the first black females to host on American telivision, or maybe it was her role as Tess on Touched by an Angel. But no matter how you knew her, she was beloved and will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace and live on in the important and groundbreaking work she did throughout her life. Godspeed Della Reese.
