Tony Martin (Alvin Morris) (December 25, 1913 – July 27, 2012)


Martin’s career spanned over seven decades, and he scored dozens
of hits between the late-1930s and mid-1950s with songs such as
"
Walk Hand in Hand", "I Love Paris", "Stranger in Paradise" and
"
I Get Ideas".

In 1958, he became the highest paid performer in Las Vegas, signing
a five-year deal at the
Desert Inn, earning $25,000 a week.

In an unlikely pairing, Martin recorded for the Motown Records label
in the mid-1960s, scoring a minor hit with the record "Talkin’ To Your Picture".

Singer, actress, and fashion designer Vanessa Williams
turned 59 in March.

On July 23, 1984, 21-year-old Vanessa Williams gave up her
Miss America title, the first resignation in the pageant’s history,
after Penthouse magazine announces plans to publish nude
photos of the beauty queen in its September issue. Williams
originally made history on September 17, 1983, when she
became the first Black woman to win
the Miss America crown.

Miss New Jersey, Suzette Charles (below), the first runner-up
and also African American, assumed Williams’ tiara for the
two
months
that remained of her reign.
