Ruby Murray
Birth: Mar. 29, 1935
Death: Dec. 17, 1996

One of the most popular singers in the UK during the 50s, she was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her characteristic hoarse voice was as a result of a operation on her throat in her early childhood. Her first single was "Heartbeat," which reached the UK top 5 in 1954, the next, "Softly Softly," reached number 1 in 1955, a year in which Murray achieved the rare feat of having five singles in the UK top twenty at the same time. She appeared in a royal command performance, and toured the USA, Malta and North Africa. Her only film role in the 1956 farce, "A Touch of the Sun." Her name lives on in cockney rhyming slang as the rhyme for curry. She died of liver cancer after a long period of illness. (bio by: Angel moz)
