Latin born Barbara DeCosta, one of the liveliest singers
to come along in recent years, stands five feet eight inches and weighs one-hundred and thirty-five pounds. She attended UCLA
and speaks English Fluently.
Babara is equally at home with a ballad, show tune, torch
song or operatic aria, as well as some clever special material. She sings in English, French and Spanish and is remarkably
adept in these languages.
After many years of voice training, Miss DeCosta entered
the concert field. She made an extensive tour of the West Coasat where audiences and critics alike acclaimed her exciting
mezzo-soprano tone qualities.
Following her completion of this tour, Network executives
vied for Barbara's outstanding talents, and for one year, "The Barbara DeCosta Show", sponsored
by The Roper Stove Co., was heard from coast-to-coast. This show, emanating from KLAC-TV, Los Angeles, Calif., earned for
Miss DeCosta the name, "Telegenic Barbara."
Possessed with a dynamic personality and an ability to captivate
an audience, Barbara has been established as an outstanding entertainer in most of the nation's leading night clubs and smart
Besides her numerous radio and television appearances, Miss
DeCosta has completed successful engagements at such top spots as: Cafe Gala, Bar Of Music, Latty Potter's, Victors and the
Marquez, in Los Angeles, Califnorina; The Chez Paree and Ruby Foo's in Montreal, and La Port St. John in Quebec, Canada; the
