Margaret Whiting

January 1, 1994

1994 – New York City

Margaret Whiting provides great rewards to all of us through her singing. Born to make music, there are few careers in American popular music to equal hers and fewer still surpass it. She has recorded more than five hundred songs and has had twelve gold records. She has introduced some of the greatest pop standards of all time: “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Far Away Places,” “A Tree in the Meadow,” and a song which will forever be associated with her, “Moonlight in Vermont.” Margaret came to her love of music quite naturally. Her father, Richard Whiting, was a legendary composer of such major works as “Beyond the Blue Horizon” and “Til We Meet Again.” Over the years, Ms. Whiting has never stopped working. She has appeared throughout the country in major musical comedies and plays. For five years, she toured the country with three other legends (Rosemary Clooney, Helen O’Connell and Rose Marie). Their “4 Girls 4” was one of the most popular and heavily booked attractions in the United States. Ms. Whiting serves on many boards and committees in the show business industry, including the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, the Grammy Awards and the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. She always finds time to help new and upcoming young singers and songwriters. Ms. Whiting has been a popular Master Class Instructor for the Northwood University Musical Theatre Studio, held on the Texas campus for many years.
