(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.
