India Adams

Singer/actress

Born - 8 March 1927, Los Angeles, California, USA
Died - 26 April 2020

One of the cinema's famous 'ghost singers' who dubbed Hollywood stars who couldn't sing their own songs in musicals because their voices were not strong enough, Adams was around in the 1950s, when she dubbed for such stars as Cyd Charisse and Joan Crawford. The narrow-faced, wide-mouthed blonde with girl-next-door looks was a popular night-club attraction in her own right and also made several record albums and stage shows. She was almost never seen as herself, although there were two or three films - including Fake (2013) and Followed (2020) - as well as the shorts Southern dysComfort (2012), The Gestapo vs Granny (2014), Benjamin (2017) and Bubba's Blessing (2018). She also appeared in the documentary Secret Voices of Hollywood in 2013.
