Drog sig fram på småjobb tills hon upptäcktes av hustrun till orkesterledaren Benny Goodman i juli 1941. Hon blev anställd i han orkester och ett år senare fick hon sin första stora skivframgång med ´Why don't you do right. 1943 gifte hon sig med gitarristen Dave Barbour och slutade framträda men gjorde inspelningar och radioframträdanden. Började skriva musik och gjorde bl.a. musiken till Walt Disney filmen "Lady & Lufsen" 1955 där hon också medverkade som sångerska. Medverkade också i ett par filmer på 1950-talet. Själv och till sammans med andra skrev hon över 200 låtar och hon spelade också in 60 LP-skivor. Under åren 1943 - 51 var hon gift med gitarristen Dave Barbour (1912 - 65) och med honom hade hon också en dotter (f. 1945).
