“I do not have an act. I just do Eartha Kitt. Eartha Kitt is my act and I am still learning from her. Not that I want to be perfect. I do not believe in perfection. What do you do with perfection? I want to be whoever Eartha Kitt is until the gods take me wherever they take me.”
The key to Kitt’s voice is that “grrrowl”. She says she mastered the vibrato when learning to roll her R’s to speak French. “You know how to gargle? That’s it!” When I protest that it sounds too simple, she explains that the rest is “voice placement” – channelling the voice to a particular place in the mouth.
