Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mildred "Millie" Kirkham is an American singer who was featured on many classic hit recordings from the mid 1950's through the 1980s. Kirkham was born in Nashville, Tennessee. She performed in high school bands in the early 1940s before graduating to session work. Her soprano voice has been featured on the who's who in both pop and country music, most notably Elvis Presley beginning with the 1957 recording session that garnered the classic, "Blue Christmas" alongside the Jordanaires. Gordon Stoker of the Jordanaires has been quoted as saying that Presley liked Tubb but did not want to recut his song. Ordered to do the song, he told the band to play and sing as badly as possible.show more
