Patty Andrews, R.I.P.

Patty Andrews, the last of The Andrews Sisters, passed away yesterday of natural causes. The youngest of the three Andrews Sisters was 94.

Along with LaVerne and Maxene, the trio began singing together as children in the 1920s. They attained the height of their success during WWII most notably with their song “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy From Company B” via Abbott & Costello. 

By the end of the ’40s, the Andrews went their separate ways with Patty at odds with her older sisters. 

Yet their musical influence endured perhaps most notably with Bette Midler who essentially launched her career with a cover of “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” that was the faithful to the original. Christina Aguilera’s 2007 song “Candyman” was directly inspired by The Andrews Sisters. 

I leave you with Patty and Maxene harmonizing one last time when they received their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1987.
