Classic Vocalist: Helen O’Connell

Helen O’Connell died at the age of 73 in 1993. She may be gone but her memory lives on among big band fans who remember her as a vocalist with the Jimmy Dorsey band.

She also was the host of the Today show in later years and appeared as a host on the Miss USA and Miss Universe beauty pageants.
