11/I Tom Jones: (Sir) Tom Jones is famous for his Welsh singing voice and for such hits as “It’s Not Unusual,” What’s New Pussycat,” “Deliliah” and many others. He has been a world famous singing celebrity, and his great voice and good looks made him a favorite with women throughout his career.

 

11/8 Julie Andrews: Julie Andrews made her most famous debut in the United States on the Broadway stage as “My Fair Lady.” She has had iconic performances in concerts, Broadway shows, films and television, perhaps most famously known for her roles in Camelot on the Broadway stage, and in The Sound of Music, both on stage and film. Her characterization of Mary Poppins set the tone for many Disney characters which followed her.

 

11/15 Sammy Davis Jr: Singer, actor, drummer, trumpeter, vibraphonist, impressionist, dancer and comedian – Sammy Davis Jr broke racial walls and segregated traditions in American entertainment during the 1960’s and decades that followed. He was a member of Frank Sinatra’s “Rat Pack,” appeared in the starring role of a Broadway show in 1964 (Golden Boy), converted to Judaism and married a white woman in his startlingly successful career that was nearly ended when he lost an eye in an automobile accident. He was known as “the hardest working entertainer on the stage.”

 

11/22 Billy Eckstine: Noted for his nearly operatic and smooth jazz voice, Billy Eckstine was the inspiration for such great singers as Johnny Hartman, Earl Coleman, Joe Williams, Arthur Prysock and Lou Rawls. His recording of “I Apologize” was given the Grammy Hall of Fame Award in 1999. His career was honored in tributes by Duke Ellington, Sammy Davis, Jr, Quincy Jones and Lionel Hampton among many others.

 

11/29 John Charles Thomas – Probably the most celebrated baritone of opera and musical theater during his lifetime, he was certainly the highest paid singer of that category. He sang in Broadway shows, in opera houses over the world, including the Metropolitan Opera House, and made concerts at Carnegie Hall. He made familiar appearances on radio and television shows, appearing with Edgar Bergen and Groucho Marx, and was a famous “hater” of rock and roll. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
