Robert DoQui (1934-2008) was born in Stillwater, Oklahoma, the only son of a prizefighter. His grandmother provided music lessons for him, but his piano teacher was so impressed with his untrained singing voice that she gave him vocal training and arranged a concert at a local church, where DoQui began his singing career at the age of six. He continued to sing as he was growing up, and by the time he was in high school he was earning a living singing in Stillwater night clubs. When he graduated, he received his choice of scholarship: academic, sports, or music. He accepted the music scholarship at Langston University in Oklahoma and became a member of the school’s popular singing group, “The Langstonaires.” After a four-year stint in the U. S. Air Force that included service in the Korean War, he went to New York to pursue a career in show business.
