Las Vegas Performer Dies
(Las Vegas, NV) — A former singer at the Tropicana hotel’s “Folies Bergere” show has died of bone cancer. Fifty-nine year-old Michaelina Bellamy, who passed away Friday, had been the show’s principal singer for a decade, and performed on the road with Bob Hope and Engelbert Humperdinck. In 2007, Bellamy was assaulted by the priest of a local Catholic church where she served as a singer and entertainment director. The priest, George Chaanine, is serving time in prison. Funeral services for Bellamy are pending.
