Kolkata: Iconic jazz singer and performer Pam Crain, whose voice mesmerised generations of fans in the eastern metropolis, died here due to cardiac arrest, said her husband Don Saigal.

The 80-year-old crooner was suffering from respiratory problems that led to a cardiac arrest Wednesday.

Known for her singing talents that matched her beauty, Crain regaled masses and gave an identity to the city`s nightlife through her regular stints at various clubs in the city`s hip and stylish Park Street area.

She was aptly tagged as `Queen of Park Street` and was an inspiration to budding musicians including a young Usha Uthup.
