Barbara McNair:

A beautiful lady with a beautiful voice.

She will be missed.
October 07, 2009
If I could just say, I fell in love with her as a teenager. I was just so captured by her. And from that day to hearing the painful news, I have followed her work. I was priviledged to meet her on my 40th birthday. She was doing a concert in the park, in Long Beach, CA. I don't know how she knew I was dying to meet her, but she called me on stage to sing the "Name Game" song. She could not believe my name. I was nervous, eccastatic, and on cloud nine. I have pictures of the occassion, and will cherish them even more now. She complimented my voice, ( a bit generous, I think, nonetheless, thoughtfull). She wished me a happy birthday, gave me a big hug, and I floated for at least a year later. She so blessed my heart. I never thought I would meet my idol. And there she was on what thought was gonna be the saddest day of my life. Thank you for sharing her with me. God bless your hearts. Rest my dearest friend..........Much love.

To the Family of Barbara McNair,

I am so sorry for the loss of such a family treasure like Mrs.McNair. I know it has been over a year since her death, but she is still greatly missed.
(What a great Talent she had)!

This has to still be a hard time for the family, so I wanted to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible.

At Matthew 5:4-"Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted". This comfort can be found at Psalms 37:29-"The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it".

I hope these scriptures bring the family a measure of peace.

From a Stranger who cares.

In memory of Barbara McNair: You were a very lovely and talented singer-actress. I recently saw you in "The Organization" playing the wife of Virgil Tibbbs (Sidney Poitier).
I was very young back in the 70's but remembered your popularity with other African American beauties like Judy Pace and Tamara Dobson. You made us proud! May your rest in peace.

I'm sorry to hear about your loved one, I would love to share a scripture to the family at John11:25 Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life, he that exercises faith in me even though he dies, will come to life.

I was young at the time of her TV show. Also late in life getting into "the days" music back then. However, I am glad I found an album she recorded at Motown. Yes her recordings of several H-D-H and others songs are great, although seem not to be aimed at the young youth Soul music buyers. I have been searching also for the 45's too. I saw a couple of 8-tracks in the 70's.
I am a fan. I would also like to see replays of her shows.

I cannot express my sadness at the passing of Barbara enough.
I have long been a fan of You're gonna love my baby for many many years and still have that record today.
I will play this record at a venue in Perth in memorium of Barbara to many people who share the same sentiments.
KEEP THE FAITH

I was totally shock to learn of the passing of Ms. McNair. When I was a child, I remember watching her show on television. To me, Ms. McNair was like Diahann Carroll, in the fact that she showed a different way to be black. What I mean by that comment, she was more than a skin color, and like, Ms. Carroll, because of her strength many people of color are now allowed to perform in areas that we once upon a time were not allowed. Ms. McNair, like Ms. Carroll, showed the world that "we" come in so many different shades/colors. Ms. McNair, I thank you and will forever remember you. I've mentioned you on my space - in hope that others will learn of another american diamond named Barbara McNair. Rest In Peace.
