Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June
29, 2002) was an American singer and
actress. She came to prominence in the
early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a
My House" written by William Saroyan and
his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known
as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin
and the Chipmunks), which was followed by
other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a
cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-
Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati),
"Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as
Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House",
although she had success as a jazz vocalist.
Clooney's career languished in the 1960s,
partly due to problems related to depression
and drug addiction, but revived in 1977,
when her White Christmas co-star Bing
Crosby asked her to appear with him at a
show marking his 50th anniversary in show
business. She continued recording until her
death in 2002. She was the aunt of
Academy Award winning actor George
Clooney.
