Molly Bee - Singer

Updated on January 30, 2015

Molly Bee - Country Music Singer

As a kid I remember Mollybee singing on television. She appeared on several programs, one being Townhall. She appeared as a regular on Hometown Jamboree, a television program with Tennessee Ernie Ford. Molly Bee appears as Pinky Lee's sidekick on the Pinky Lee Show in the 50s. She also did a commercial for Stanley Chevolet. She was very popular in her day, and I remember my sister wanting to imitate her. Mollybee was very pretty and could really belt out the songs. Her first major recording success with "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus", in 1952. She acquired her first contract to record at age 13.

Born Mollie Gene, August 18, 1939, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; she was part Native American. Molly Bee traveled all over the world entertaining for various groups and even entertained the troops with Bob Hope.

Molly was discovered by "singing cowboy" Rex Allen, a disc jockey in Tucson, when he heard her singing. Allen was impressed with Bee's voice, and had the ten-year-old sing "Lovesick Blues" on his popular radio show. (Wikipedia)

Molly was married five times. In her later years, she made her home in Oceanside, California. She passed away February 7, 2009 from a stroke. She was 69 years old.

I hope you will enjoy learning or reminiscing about Molly Bee.
