Marnie Nixon

I know: who?? Bear with me,  because this lady is somewhat fantastic. She was the singing voice for some of the female leads of some of the greatest musicals of all time. 

The King and I, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, and some of Marilyn Monroe’s high notes.

She survived breast cancer, twice, and used her remarkable, versatile voice for many charitable causes.

Marnie, we salute you. Rest in Peace.
