Personal Quote:

If I have any style, any presence on the stage, I'm sure Joe Venuti is responsible for it. Joe once told me if you're going to make a mistake, make it so loud everybody else sounds wrong, and I really and truly believe that's why I sing so loud.

Trivia:

After moving to Dallas, Kay "became a local radio sensation at age 7", subsequently hosting her own 15-minute show twice weekly and earning $3 per performance. See more »
