Marjorie Hughes (born Marjorie Carle, December 15, …
Marjorie Hughes (born Marjorie Carle, December 15, 1925) is a former singer; she was a singer in the Frankie Carle Orchestra. She was also Frankie Carle's daughter. After singers Betty Bonney (aka Judy Johnson) and Phyllis Lynne had come and gone, Carle was auditioning new female singers - some in person, and some by means of demo records. Carle's wife sneaked in a demo of Carle's daughter recorded from a radio program. She was singing with the Paul Martin band in her first singing job. Carle liked the singer he heard on the demo, at first unaware that it was his daughter. When he decided to give his daughter a chance with his band, Carle changed his daughter's name to Marjorie Hughes, so that the public wouldn't know she was his daughter until he could be certain she'd make the grade. The band made a hit recording with Marjorie Hughes on the vocal, entitled "Oh, What It Seemed To Be." With the success of that song, Walter Winchell announced that Marjorie Hughes was actually Frankie Carle's daughter.
