Deadline Hollywood reports:
Ruth Marx, whose singing voice was heard on classic TV commercial jingles that likely reached as many ears as the pop songs of her famous son Richard Marx, died of lung cancer at her home in California on Aug. 24. She was 85.
Her death was announced to the Chicago Sun Times by son Richard. In a Facebook post, he also wrote, in part, “My heart is in a million pieces and I will love you with every breath of my life remaining.”
Among Ruth Marx’s most familiar vocal performances was the jingle for Chicken of the Sea tuna: “Ask any mermaid you happen to see, what’s the best tuna? Chicken of the Sea!”
Read the full article. In case you don’t follow Richard Marx on Twitter, he’s one of the most combative liberals on the site. Every day I marvel that he hasn’t been banned for his usually obscene and often hilarious attacks on right wingers.
