Camilla E. Williams was the first African American to receive a contract with a major American opera company, debuting with the New York City Opera in 1946.
Camilla Williams (d. 1/29/2012) best known as the first African American opera star with the New York City Opera. You may find her in stores portraying Madam Butterfly or perhaps Neda, Mimi or Aida. One thing is for sure. If you hear an operatic voice in an unexpected place, get out your ghost machine, thumb through your ghostidex and see if you can pull her treasure in. Ghost hunting can be a very lucrative and most interesting career indeed.
RIP Camilla Williams
