Name

Sue Raney

Sue Raney (June 18, 1940) began singing at only four years of age and, encouraged by her mother, began working professionally before she was a teenager. When she was nearly 14, she joined Jack Carson's Los Angeles-based radio show in 1954, and later worked on television as Ray Anthony's band's main vocalist.

After a hiatus in the 1970s, Raney has continued to record sporadically.

She loves vintage songs, and stars of yesteryear such as Doris Day, Patti Page, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney and Nat Cole.

Raney provided the singing voice for Betty Boop in the scrapped storyboard demo for The Betty Boop Movie in 1993, along with Jimmy Rowles as Betty Boop's father Mr. Boop

Trivia

  • Sue Raney did not sing in the character's usual "Boop-Oop-a-Doop" baby-talk style, instead Raney recorded in her own singing style, a more deeper range.
  • Raney's singing is said to be influenced by the "jazz" genre music.
  • Raney recorded the "demo" as Betty Boop's voice[1] for reference and or demonstration. This would have later been used by professional voice-actress Mary Kay Bergman. The project was later abandoned and canned.
