That Was My Heart You Heard! (1954) - Betty Madigan

Betty Madigan (born 1930? in Washington, D.C.) is an American traditional popular singer and actress.


In 1954, she was rated "the newer female vocalist [with] the greatest chance to become one of the top female vocalist names" in a poll of disc jockeys conducted by Billboard. That year, Madigan appeared on The Red Skelton Hour, The Dave Garroway Show, and The Colgate Comedy Hour. In 1956, she portrayed Martha Cratchitt in a 1956 episode of The Alcoa Hour called "The Stingiest Man in Town." She performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1957, and on The Dick Clark Show on 1958.

A description of Madigan in a 1959 issue of Gramophone said that she sounds like Alma Cogan and also resembles her.
