Jane Wilson (2)

Real Name:
Jane Wilson Molyneaux
Profile:
Soprano vocalist and singer.

Wilson was recruited by Fred Waring in 1937, when she was just a freshman at Northwestern. She left the University and performed and toured with the band for 13 years. After leaving Waring's band, she appeared on television shows and photos of her were featured in Life magazine and The Saturday Evening Post, for General Electric televisions. As much as she excelled in her radio, television and LP presence, Jane always found her greatest fulfillment performing on stage to a live audience. In the '50s she toured the country with a small ensemble called "The Carolers," playing venues of all sizes from big cities to small towns. In 1954 she took her group to the White House at the request of the Eisenhowers, and that night she impressed Queen Elizabeth so much she was invited to the private royal chambers afterward for a personal recital.
