Cesária Évora has left the world of the living, and Cape Verde has lost its most precious jewel, the barefoot diva, who has now taken her incomparable voice to heaven.

Cesária Évora passed away this morning, Saturday, December 16, at Baptista de Sousa Hospital in Mindelo, on her native island of São Vicente, where she was admitted yesterday with respiratory insufficiency and pulmonary edema.
