Jessica Dragonette was a popular American singer and radio personality. During her 22-year radio career, "The Princess of Song" (as the media nicknamed her) helped popularize operetta and semi-classical music. She is especially remembered as the star of the Cities Service Concerts program, which she joined in 1930, and her many charitable performances for the U.S. armed forces during World War II.
