Carlotta Dale

Anyone know anything about this torch/big-band singer> She was active for a while in the late 30s/early 40s.%0D %0D I found a brief biography online, but that's it. Her career seems to have ended abruptly.%0D %0D There was some crazy talk on a Sirius old-time radio show station about how her band flew in a plane over the hospital where she was recovering for a car accident, and played for her.%0D %0D Did that actually happen? Since DL experts know pretty much everything, I was hoping for some explanation.%0D %0D TIA.%0D %0D %0D %0D

The only thing I know is that when I was 4 or 5 my mother would take me to band rehearsals and Carlotta would baby sit me. Her father was a salesman for my great uncle, in Philly. My mother said Carlotta was the most beautiful woman she ever saw.
