British singer Chick Henderson had a warm, rich, emotional, yet manly voice, that could stir the heartstrings and get the body swaying.
Henderson was just 31 when he died in 1944 as the result of torpedo wounds sustained during WW2 but in his short career had managed to garner a significant fanbase in the UK and recorded some highly acclaimed tracks, including his greatest hit Begin the Beguine, recorded with Joe Loss and his band.
Chick went on to make over 250 recordings, many of them great songs, such as That Lovely Weekend, Starlight Serenade and Bewteen a Kiss and a Sigh - and in fact Chick Henderson was the only recording artist in the 1930s to have a hit record (Begin the Beguine) that sold over a million copies.
