Patty Andrews Dies at Age 94

The legendary singer Patty Andrews has passed away at the age of 94. Andrews was the last surviving member of the Andrews Sisters singing trio who performed such hits as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy and I Can Dream, Can't I?

The Andrews Sisters supported the troops during World War II by encouraging the purchase of war bonds and by entertaining troops overseas in order to boost troop morale. Patty, the lead singer of the group, was known as the clown of the group yet could sing songs that brought troops to tears as they listened. The Andrews Sisters had over 400 songs recorded and sold over 80 million records worldwide.

The Round Barn Theatre at Amish Acres recently completed a six-week run of Sisters of Swing: The Story of the Andrews Sisters which pays tribute to this amazing group of women that made history one note at a time. Please join Amish Acres as we remember Patty Andrews and the contribution she made to music, the country and the world.
