Personal Quote:

If I have any style, any presence on the stage, I'm sure Joe Venuti is responsible for it. Joe once told me if you're going to make a mistake, make it so loud everybody else sounds wrong, and I really and truly believe that's why I sing so loud.

Trivia:

Rough-voiced (due to a throat ailment) Native American popular singer. At the height of her popularity, during the 1950s, she had two number one hit singles, "Wheel of Fortune" (Capitol: 1952) and "The Rock-and-Roll Waltz" (RCA Victor: 1956). See more »
