In the last few hours, Hollywood and her millions of fans say goodbye to the iconic lady of acting and musicals, the great actress Angela Lansbury, who died yesterday at her home in Los Angeles, a few days before her 97th birthday.
The multi-awarded Emmy, Tony, Golden Globe and Oscar winner Dame Angela Lansbury, in 1991 lent her voice to Mrs. Potts, in the classic Disney film, “Beauty and the Beast” and became known to younger generations as well.
On Twitter, users have uploaded two videos that have gone viral.
In the first, in 2016, Lansbury attended the musical “Beauty and the Beast” and at the end of the performance she went on stage and performed the main song with a piano.
