Norma Deloris Egstrom (May 26, 1920 – January 21, 2002), known professionally as Peggy Lee, was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer, and actress, over a career spanning six decades. From her beginning as a vocalist on local radio to singing with Benny Goodman’s big band, Lee created a sophisticated persona, writing music for films, acting, and recording conceptual record albums combining poetry and music.
It was such a thrill to work with Peggy Lee who had been one of my idols since a kid. Her version of ‘Til There Was You’ was what inspired me to do it with The Beatles (of course, I didn’t realise it was from the musical ‘Music Man’) so meeting and working with her was a real pleasure. She was a classy lady whose music thrilled lots of people all over the world. Happy Birthday, Peg! –Paul McCartney, from Facebook, May 26, 2020
