All the while, "the little girl with the great big voice" kept on singing. of photos.

Annotation:
Child prodigy Brenda Lee ambles through her nearly 50 years in the music industry. By age 10 she was the breadwinner in a family headed by a broken-down drunk; by age 12 she had signed with a major recording label; by age 21 she was the biggest-selling female musician in the world. Surprisingly, Lee's autobiography charts none of the usual backstabbing, sycophantic terrain many musicians travel. Instead, her long, happy marriage and relative financial profit from her recordings has left her happy and still, as she approaches her 60s, productive.
