Beryl Davis (16 March 1924 28 October 2011) was a British-born American big band singer. Her younger sister is Lisa Davis Waltz, a teen actress in the 1950s and 1960s. Born in Plymouth, England, she began to sing for her father's band,[1] and became popular singing for British and Allied troops during World War II. Glenn Miller discovered her in London, and she sang for the Army Air Force Orchestra.[2][3] She moved to Los Angeles after the war with her father's big band, and with Frank Sinatra for one year on Your Hit Parade.[4]

She was part of The Four Girls singing group, with Jane Russell, Rhonda Fleming, and Connie Haines. They recorded sixteen singles, and albums which became best sellers.[5] She appeared both in variety shows and films.[6][7]

In 1996, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Palm Springs Walk of Stars was dedicated to her.[8]


On 28 October 2011, Davis died in Los Angeles from complications of Alzheimer's disease, at age 87.[9]
