Teddy Grace

Real Name:
Stella Gloria Crowson
Profile:
American Jazz, Swing, and Blues singer, professionally active from 1931 to 1940
Born Stella Gloria Crowson, 26 June 1905, Arcadia, Louisiana – Died 4 January 1992, La Mirada, California

Grace first sang professionally in 1931. She sang on radio in the American South and worked with the bands of Bob Crosby, Paul Whiteman, Al Katz (1933), Tommy Christian (1934), and Mal Hallett (1934–37). She also recorded for Decca during 1937-1940.

She joined the WACs during World War II and after straining herself singing during a busy schedule of bond rallies and shows, she lost her voice. Although Teddy Grace's speaking voice eventually came back in a weakened form, she was unable to sing again and spent the rest of her life outside of music.
