The Andrews Sisters were the most popular female vocal group in the first half of the 20th century, peaking during the swing and boogie-woogie eras of the late 1930s through the 1940s. LaVerne, Maxene and Patty created a close-harmony sound that would be covered years later by Bette Midler, Christina Aguilera, and a few others. Over the course of their long careers, The Andrews Sisters had sold 75 million records by the 1970s, and were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1998.
