Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American cabaret singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit „Come On-a My House”, which was followed by other pop numbers such as „Botch-a-Me”, „Mambo Italiano”, „Tenderly”, „Half as Much”, „Hey There” and „This Ole House”, although she had success as a jazz vocalist. Clooney’s career languished in the 1960s, partly due to problems related to depression and drug addiction, but revived in 1977, when her White Christmas co-star Bing Crosby asked her to appear with him at a show marking his 50th anniversary in show business. She continued recording until her death in 2002.
