Same day as Charles Manson. She played Tess in Touched by an Angel.

Quote
Della Reese (born Delloreese Patricia Early; July 6, 1931 – November 19, 2017) was an American jazz and gospel singer, actress, and ordained minister. Her career spanned seven decades.

Reese's long career began as a singer, scoring a hit with her 1959 single "Don't You Know?". In the late 1960s, she hosted her own talk show, Della, which ran for 197 episodes.[1][2] She also starred in films beginning in 1975, including playing opposite Redd Foxx in Harlem Nights (1989), Martin Lawrence in A Thin Line Between Love and Hate (1996) and Elliott Gould in Expecting Mary (2010). She achieved continuing success in the television religious supernatural drama Touched by an Angel (1994–2003), in which Reese played the leading role of Tess.

I loved that show, especially the early episodes.  It got kinda cheesy over time, but she always enjoyed that role, and played it well.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
