Bio From King 4561 Dee-Jay Label: Sarah broke into show business at the Savoy Ballroom in Chicago, where she was featured both on piano and as the vocalist. She made so good an impression that her all-girl unit was booked for a national tour. Sarah made her first radio broadcasts while still in high school, when she was repeatedly chosen to represent her school in competitive broadcasts with other schools.
