Description “Smile while you’re singing – the listener can hear it!” was Rosemary Clooney’s advice to a young singer. It was a maxim which she applied to herself and it helped in a recording career which lasted some five decades.
Born in Maysville Kentucky in 1928, she was the eldest of three children. One of her younger siblings was Betty, with whom she would start a singing act. In spring 1945, Rosemary and Betty entered a talent show on Cincinnati’s WLW Radio. They won! Better, the station hired the girls to sing on the late night show at a weekly salary of $20.00 each.
Not long after, they started touring with the Tony Pastor band. In 1946, they cut several discs for the Cosmopolitan label, then Columbia moved in and signed Rosemary.
