February 29, 1916
Dinah Shore (born Frances Rose Shore) was an American
singer, actress, and television personality. She was most popular during
the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s.
After failing singing auditions for the bands of Benny Goodman and
both Jimmy Dorsey and his brother Tommy Dorsey, Shore struck out on her
own to become the first singer of her era to achieve huge solo success.
She enjoyed a long string of over 80 charted popular hits, lasting from
1940 into the late '50s, and after appearing in a handful of films went
on to a four-decade career in American television, starring in her own
music and variety shows in the '50s and '60s and hosting two talk shows
in the '70s. TV Guide magazine ranked her at #16 on their list of
the top fifty television stars of all time.
Stylistically, Dinah Shore
was often compared to two popular singers who followed her in the
mid-to-late '40s and early '50s, Doris Day and Patti Page.
Dinah Shore died February 24, 1994 in Beverly Hills, California, of
ovarian cancer at age 77. Her ashes were divided and she has two burial
