Alma Cogan

Born Alma Angela Cohen on the 19th of May 1932 in Stepney, London, fun-loving Alma, dubbed 'The girl with laughter in her voice', often wore extravagant gowns with lots of sequins and feathers. She sang in a variety of styles and was always busy with many TV appearances and recording sessions. She was friends with the Beatles and even recorded one of their songs, 'Eight Days A Week'. Also famous for the frequent parties she hosted at her London apartment, tragically, Alma died of cancer in a London hospital in 1966 at the very early age of 34.
