The Andrews Sisters - Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy
Last Andrews Sister, Patty, dies at 94
Patty Andrews, the last surviving member of the Andrews Sisters, died at her Northridge, California, home Wednesday, her publicist Alan Eichler said. She was 94.
The Andrews Sisters began singing on Minnesota radio stations in the 1920s, but after several years on the Vaudeville circuit they began a recording career that made them one of the most successful female groups ever.
Their family lived in Mound, Minnesota, when Patty was born on February 16, 1918.
Patty Andrews was just 10 when Larry Rich, who saw the sisters sing at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis, offered them a spot on his traveling show.
The sisters performed on troops ships, airplane hangars and battlefields for the USO during the World War II.
They appeared in 16 films during the 1940s, including “Buck Privates,” “In the Navy,” and “Hold That Ghost” with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello, “Hollywood Canteen” and “Road to Rio” with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby as well as in a number of musical films.
The Andrews Sisters earned 19 gold records and sold about 100 million singles.
