Biography/History

b. Myrtle Audrey Arinsberg, 20 September 1924, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. Pop vocalist Grant was apparently named after a New York restaurant called Gogi's La Rue, which was frequented by Dave Kapp, head of A&R at RCA Records. She had previously recorded, without success, as Audrey Brown and Audrey Grant, but as Gogi Grant she hit the US Top 10 in 1955 with the ballad "Suddenly There's A Valley". Her biggest hit came a year later with a sad ballad about lost love, "The Wayward Wind", which shot to number 1 in the USA and reached the Top 10 in the UK. After signing to RCA Victor she was heavily marketed as an easy-listening singer. She provided all the vocals for actress Ann Blyth's portrayal of 1920s torch singer Helen Morgan in the 1957 biopic The Helen Morgan Story.
