Anita Kerr (born 1927) is an American singer, pianist, composer, arranger and conductor. Initially establishing a vocal quintet in Nashville, the group was hired by a WSM radio director to form an octet on the station's "Sunday Down South" broadcasts. In 1950, they had a hit with 'Our Lady of Fatima', resulting in a recording contract. By 1956, the group was a quartet, travelling regularly to New York for appearances on radio and TV. Later, they also performed weekly with Jim Reeves on WSM. In 1961, The Anita Kerr Singers accepted another recording contract, touring Europe in 1964 with Chet Atkins and Jim Reeves and in 1965, won a Grammy Best Performance award for their 'We Dig Mancini' album (shown below). The same year, Anita Kerr relocated to Los Angeles and signed a large recording contract, focusing on works of the Beatles, Bert Kaempfert and Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. After recording for another label in 1970, Kerr moved to Switzerland, holding regular recording sessions in London, recording a popular Simon and Garfunkel album and being invited to conduct the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1975, Anita Kerr received an ASCAP award, and another award in 1985.
