Happy 90th Birthday Maria Callas

Today’s Google Doodle honors Maria Callas (December 2, 1923 – September 16, 1977), an American-born Greek soprano who ranks as one of the most acclaimed and influential opera singers in the 20th century. TIME magazine once called her the “undisputed queen of the world’s opera” and  ”a woman for whom the term prima donna could have been invented.”

The video below showcases one of her better known pieces, although I recommend you check out as many as you can — her voice truly is divine.
