Helen O'connell


Helen O'Connell (b. May 23, 1920 in Lima, Ohio – September 9, 1993 in San Diego, California) was a singer, actress, and dancer. Helen O'Connell joined the Jimmy Dorsey band in 1939 and achieved her best selling records in the early forties with "Green Eyes", "Amapola," and "Tangerine." In each of these Latin-influenced numbers, Bob Eberly crooned the song which Helen then reprised in an up-tempo arrangement. Helen won the 1940 Metronome magazine poll for best female vocalist.

She was one of the first "girls" on NBC's The Today Show, and at one point had her own television show. Helen retired from show business upon her first marriage in 1943.

Helen had four daughters, and eight grandchildren. When the first marriage failed, she embarked on a solo career in 1951, achieving some chart success and becoming a regular television performer. Helen was married a total of four times. She co-hosted the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants with Bob Barker from 1972 to 1980. In her last marriage, she was married to arranger/conductor/composer Frank De Vol when she died in San Diego, California from a battle with hepatitis C resulting in primary liver cancer (hepatoma).
