Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards
Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards
With his cheery tenor voice and ever-present ukulele, Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards was a major vaudeville star of the 1920s who branched out into record-making (selling a reported 74 million discs), filmmaking (appearing in as many as 100 films), radio, and television. He introduced such songs as "Fascinating Rhythm" and "Toot, Toot, Tootsie! (Goo'bye)," and scored his biggest record hits with the chart-toppers "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" and "Singin' in the Rain," but it was as the voice of Jiminy Cricket in the animated film Pinocchio, singing "When You Wish Upon a Star," that he achieved immortality.
