“Bob embodied the melodies of Sesame Street like no one else, and his performances have brought joy and wonder to generations of children around the world, whether teaching them the ABCs , people in their neighborhood or the simple joy of feeling music in their hearts,” the organization said.

“A performer revered the world over, Bob’s wealthy tenor has repeatedly filled the airwaves and concert halls from Las Vegas to Saskatchewan to Tokyo.

“We will be forever grateful for his many years of passionate and creative contributions to Sesame Street and honored that he shared so much of his life with us.”

McGrath grew up in Illinois and studied music at the University of Michigan and the Manhattan School of Music.

Sesame Street actor Alan Muraoka paid tribute to McGrath as a role model, mentor and friend.

“Her kindness and sense of humor was such a joy, and I loved her so much,” he said on Facebook.

“Rest well my friend. You did well”
