A native New Yorker whose golden voice entertained generations of fans has died.

Eydie Gorme, one half of the iconic duet "Steve and Eydie," died in Las Vegas Saturday following an undisclosed illness.

The Bronx native started her career singing on the nightclub circuit.

She then met and married her stage partner, Steve Lawrence, in 1957.

They were together for 55 years and gained national fame on the old Steve Allen "Tonight Show."

Gorme scored a solo hit with the chart topper "Blame it on the Bossa Nova" in 1963.

The Spanish speaker also had several hits in Latin America.

Eydie Gorme was 84 years old.
