One of the most important musical influences of the 20th century, Peggy Lee wrote over 200 songs, recorded over 1,100 masters and had over 100 chart hits throughout her seven-decade career. As one of the world’s first female contemporary singer-songwriters, she co-wrote and sang many of her own hits, most notably “He’s a Tramp” for Disney’s Lady and the Tramp, as well as “It’s a Good Day” and “Mañana.” She’s probably best known for hits “Fever,” “I’m a Woman,” “Why Don’t You Do Right?” and “Is That All There Is?”; “Is That All There Is?” won her a Grammy for Best Contemporary Female Vocal Performance. A 13-time Grammy nominee, Peggy Lee received Lifetime Achievement awards from NARAS, ASCAP and the Society of Singers, was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame and — as an actress — earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Pete Kelly’s Blues.
