Biography

San Antonio, Texas, USA
War-era songstress Ginny Simms was born Virginia Simms on May 23, 1913, in Texas but was raised in California, which accounts for her lack of a Southern accent in her speaking/singing voice.

Ginny was performing at a club in San Francisco when she was heard by bandleader/radio star Kay Kyser. Read more...
