Clara Ann Fowler ("Patti Page") was born in Claremore, Oklahoma on November 8, 1927.
At the age of 18, sponsored by the Page Milk Company, she was a featured singer on radio and “The Singing Rage” became Patti Page.
In 1948 Patti first visited the Hit Parade with Confess, entering the top ten in 1950 with I Don’t Care If the Sun Don’t Shine and a few months later with With My Eyes Wide Open I'm Dreaming. Before the year was over, she had her first #1 chart topper with All My Love and the record that would sell more than 20 million singles, Tennessee Waltz.
Throughout the 50’s and 1960’s Patti Page would add 15 gold records including:
- Would I Love You
- Mockin’ Bird Hill
- Mister And Mississippi
- Come What May
- Once In Awhile
- I Went to Your Wedding
- Steam Heat
- How Much is That Doggie In The Window
- Changing Partners
- Cross Over The Bridge
- Allegheny Moon
- Old Cap Cod
- Left Right Out Of Your Heart
And in 1965 the title song from the Bette Davis motion picture:
- Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte
On the best selling charts more than 100 times, Patti Page sold a staggering 110 million records and won a Grammy in 1998 as "Best Traditional Pop Singer".
Patti Page was inducted into the Hit Parade Hall of Fame in 2007.
