Alaina Reed, Sesame Street‘s Olivia, passed away this week. Reed will be remembered for her beautiful and powerful voice, which she lent to many memorable songs during her tenure as Gordon’s little sister.
Reed appeared on Sesame Street from 1976 to 1988, as well as Christmas Eve on Sesame Street, Don’t Eat the Pictures, and Follow That Bird. She is also well-known to non-Sesame folks for her work on the sitcom 227 and for guest starring on shows like Friends, Lois and Clark, and NewsRadio.
Here are a few of my all-time favorite Olivia songs:
