To many, Kate Smith is now remembered as the big woman with the large voice who made "God Bless America" a second national anthem. It is often forgotten that her 50-year career included Broadway shows, records, film, television, and many concert appearances. With her five-octave range, Smith recorded more than twenty records selling over a million though she never had a singing lesson and could not read music. But it was radio that truly made Smith one of the country's most popular entertainers in the 1930s and 1940s, particularly during World War II, when she sold over $600 million in war bonds. Her success carried over into television. There she was a pioneer in daytime programming, starring in her own top-rated variety show for four years. Through detailed research, access to the singer's correspondence, and interviews with Smith and others, the author has told a remarkable story.

Richard Hayes's book on Kate Smith is a must read for anyone who remembers the great lady, one of the finest entertainers of the 20th Century.
The book is a mixture of chronological events, anecdotes, and a retrospect, all told lovingly by someone who had the distinct privilege of personally knowing her.

If you love show-business, this is a definitive and highly readable book about one of the greatest stars of the twentieth century--Miss Kate Smith. Nostalgic, historical, exciting, and wonderful, Richard Hayes has really captured the essence of "The Songbird of the South."
Hayes, a longtime personal friend of Miss Smith, has tapped into a mother-lode of personal recollections from hundreds of celebrities, friends, co-workers and fans to create a full picture of this important American. A veritable joy-ride through the world of entertainment as we now know it, Hayes chronicles Miss Smith's fifty year career from vaudeville to radio (where she was the medium's greatest star) through recordings and concerts and then television (where Kate was a female pioneer). Nostalgia buffs will tear through the pages of this book in a delicious frenzy!
