Page had three additional No. 1 hit singles between 1950 and 1953, with “All My Love (Bolero)”, “I Went to Your Wedding”, and “(How Much Is That) Doggie in the Window”. In 1947 she created a new sound by ‘over-dubbing’ her own voice to sing backup for her single ‘Confess’.
With that song, Patti Page became Mercury Records’ first successful female artist.
Page’s signature song, “Tennessee Waltz”, recorded in 1950, is one of the nine official state songs of Tennessee.
Patti Page, aka ‘Clara Ann Fowler’ was born November 8 1927 in Claremore, Oklahoma. She passed away January 1 2013 in California.
