Evelyn King

Singer and cabaret artist Evelyn King (whose real name was Evelyn Künneke) was born on December 15, 1921, in Berlin, Germany. The daughter of an operetta composer (Eduard Künneke) and opera singer (Katarina Krapotkin), King began her career as a dancer at Berlin's State Opera in the late '30s. In 1939, Nazis banned her from performing under her stage name of Evelyn King, so she began working in movies and recording pop songs, as she performed regularly on the wartime military entertainment circuit, scoring her best-known song in 1941 with "Sing Nightingale Sing." In the early '60s, King worked on movies and television in Hollywood, returning to Berlin in the late '70s and appearing on-stage in small productions and variety shows almost right up until her death at the age of 79 on April 28, 2001. ~ Greg Prato

Evelyn Champagne King was Born July 1, 1960 in the Bronx New York City. She is age 55 and alive and well. Someone needs to do a lot more research about the artists.

Aaay everybody, it's seems I am not the only one who couldn't believe this story about her. No way was she was sixty years old when she got her first hit. Somebody (who ever you are), get a good night sleep and in the morning dig up the real story about Ms. Eveyn King.

Ha. Now we know why she added the Champagne to her stage name...to separate herself from this other singer that was born 40 years earlier. Funny mix-up.

This bio is all wrong. Who are you talking about? If Evelyn King in 1960, it is no way the she was in a dancer in Berlin in the 1920's. Put the bottle down.

See that's why you can't allow dumb a** black people and ready to change the course of history white folks write our history too much. That would mean my grandmother was jamming to her music along with the following in their prime Lena Horne Ethel Waters and Evelyn Champagne King. No way in hell Shame would have been played during Pearl Harbor

Wrong info, Evelyn's only 55, going by wht this info, she would be in her 90s. Meaning she wouldve been around 64 when she made this song, which she definitely wasnt.

This biography Is totally wrong

This is really weird. When the song comes up, you get the beginning of the bio for Evelyn 'Champagne' King; but when you click on her name, you get the bio for the 1930s/40s cabaret singer!

This is a awesome song but this info seems to have been written by a drunk baby
