Google commemorates Maria Callas

Maria Callas, arguably one of the greatest and influential opera singers of the 20th century, was born on 2nd December 1923. This year marks the 90th year since her birth. Google has commemorated this occasion with a celebratory Doogle.
Google Doodle Maria Callas
I applaud Google for this effort. I am sure that many, if not most, will miss this reference, but any effort to celebrate and keep the legacy of Maria Callas alive, is good, in my books. I mentioned one of Calla's famous moments (Aida, live from Mexico City in 1951, Callas singing the stunning high E-flat at the end of Act II (held for 7 seconds) in a prior post.
