Disney D23 has reported that Ilene Woods, best known to Disney fans as the original voice of Cinderella, has passed away at the age of 81. No additional details have been provided at this time.

Woods was offered the opportunity to audition for Cinderella after she had recorded demos of songs from the film for songwriters Mack David and Jerry Livingston who had become friends with her through a music radio show she once hosted. After hearing the recordings, Walt Disney extended an invitation for Woods to audition for the film — she won the role, but never met Walt until after the film had been completed.
