Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marta Cunningham CBE (December 1869 - June 25, 1937), was an American-born European-based soprano-singer and philanthropist. Born in 1869 in Brazos County, Texas, her parents were Albert Baxter and Martha Minerva Tharp Cunningham, both from DeSoto Parish, Louisiana. Marta was educated to high school level at the Convent of Notre Dame, Baltimore. She then emigrated to Europe, where she trained classically, making her debut as a soprano soloist at the coronation of King Edward VII in 1901. She then made regular tours of England, Ireland and the United States, until taking up a residency at Claridges Hotel, London, from 1910 until 1912, presenting "matinees musicales."
