Biography | show moreshow less
Jessica Dragonette (1900-1980) was a singer who's probably best remembered for entertaining the troops and working for charities during World War II. She reportedly raised a record amount of war bonds and earned an honorary commission as Colonel. Dragonette began singing on radio in 1926 and was the first entertainer ever to be given a test for television as well as the first entertainer to have a broadcast beamed overseas, both in 1928. She has two movie credits, as a singer on The Big Broadcast of 1936 (1935) and as the singing voice of Princess Glory in the 1939 animated film Gulliver's Travels.
