BEFORE THE ANDREWS SISTERS THERE WERE THE THREE X SISTERS

Radio Guide magazine ran a full page story about Mary and she said about her singing career … “There are three lovely ladies to whom I owe a great deal. They are Vi and Pearl Hamilton, and Jessie Fordyce, whom you hear on the radio as the Three X Sisters. It was they who heard me in Baltimore when I was eleven years old and really got me started”.
