Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alma Cogan (19 May 1932 - 26 October 1966) was an English singer of traditional pop music in the 1950s and early 1960s. Dubbed "The Girl With the Laugh/Giggle/Chuckle In Her Voice," she was the highest paid British female entertainer of her era. Throughout the mid-1950s, she was the most consistently successful female singer in the UK. She was born Alma Angela Cohen Cogan in Whitechapel, East London, England, of Russian Jewish descent. Her parents Mark and Fay Cohen had another daughter, the future actress Sandra Caron, four or five years later and Alma Cogan also had a brother. Mark Cohen's work as a haberdasher involved opening stores in different areas; this entailed frequent relocation for his family. One of Cogan's early residences was in Worthing, Sussex - where her family originally lived above her father's shop.show more
