I was born on a cotton plantation in South Carolina in 1927. I was given away by my mother and sent to live with an aunt in Harlem at the age of eight. In 1943 I auditioned for the famed Katherine Dunham Dance Troupe.

While performing with the Dunham Troupe in Paris, I was spotted by a nightclub owner who signed me on as a cabaret singer. I gained fame and admirers quickly, including Orson Welles, who called me “the most exciting woman in the world”. At the Blue Angel I was seen by Leonard Stillman.

Broadway stardom led to a recording contract and a succession of best-selling records. I sung in one hundred countries and was honoured with a star on Hollywood BoulevardÂ’s Walk of Fame in 1960.

In 1994 my performance at the Café Carlyle in New York had star-studded audiences and my album was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1996. I made frequent guest appearances on television programs and my world famous voice could be heard on commercials and in New York City taxis advising riders to buckle up. I am one of only a handful of performers to be nominated twice for both a Tony Award and a Grammy Award as well as for an Emmy. Who am I?
