Classical Hollywood Stars Who Are Still Alive
Harry Belafonte – Age 94
Calypso is the album that popularized the Caribbean style of music, and Harry Belafonte is the marvel behind it. He’s also given us a list of catchy singles, including The Banana Boat Song, which has since been used to score several movies like Beetlejuice. He notably supported the Civil Rights Movement and was the late Martin Luther King Jr.’s confidant.
Doubling as an actor, he’s featured in big-screen productions like BlacKkKlansman and the White Man’s Burden. Belafonte turned 94 in March 2021, but he celebrated his 93rd birthday in style with a tribute event hosted at the Harlem-based Apollo Theatre.
