Biography (wiki)

Joanie Sommers (born Joan Drost, Buffalo, New York, February 24, 1941) is an American singer and actress with a career concentrating on jazz, standards and popular material and show-business credits. Once billed as "The Voice of the Sixties", and associated with top-notch arrangers, songwriters and producers, Sommers' popular reputation became closely tied to her biggest, yet most uncharacteristic, hit song, "Johnny Get Angry".

Sommers began singing in church to deal with "a difficult childhood". In 1951, aged 10, she appeared on a Buffalo television program singing Hank Williams' "Your Cheating Heart", winning an amateur talent contest.

In 1955, her the family relocated to Venice, California. Sommers went on to win honors as a vocalist with her high school band at Venice High, and did so again at Santa Monica City College.

Her break came after a friend took her to the Deauville Country Club (now Braemar Country Club) where she sang with Tommy Oliver whose band was resident at the time. He arranged for a demo record to be cut and presented it to Warner Brothers, whereupon Sommers was signed to the label.
