Dinah Shore, real name Fannye (Frances) Rose Shore (February 29, 1916 - February 24, 1994) was an American singer, radio hostess, television hostess, actress and golf player.

She first rose to prominence as a recording artist during the Big Band era, becoming the top-charting female vocalist of the The '40s. While her singing career was waning in the early 60s, she achieved further success in television as the hostess of variety shows such as The Dinah Shore Chevy Show (renamed The Dinah Shore Show when Chevrolet stopped sponsoring it) in the 1950s/1960s and Dinah! in The '70s.

Dinah also left a mark in the world of professional women's golf. After starting in the sport at the age of 52, she co-founded the Colgate Dinah Shore Golf Tournament, later renamed ANA Inspiration, one of the five major golf championships for women.


She was married to actor George Montgomery for 20 years until their divorce, and had a high profile relation with Burt Reynolds in the 1970s.
