Carole Rees Jones Cabaret Singer
Dorothy Squires (25 March 1915 – 14 April 1998 was a Welsh singer. Among her recordings were versions of “A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening”, “I’m in the Mood for Love”, “Anytime”, “If You Love Me (Really Love Me)” and “And So to Sleep Again”. Squires decided to pursue her dream in London, so while working as a nurse she would audition unsuccessfully for various jobs, during which she met agent Joe Kay, who got her night time work in various clubs.
While working in the East End, Squires worked at a club which gave her the name Dorothy, which she liked and used on stage after that time. Squires did most of her work with the orchestra of Billy Reid, who was her partner for many years. After she joined his orchestra in 1936, he began to write songs for her to perform. On 20 May 2013, a commemorative blue plaque was unveiled outside Aston House on New Road in Llanelli, where Squires and her family took up residence in her fifteenth year. Financed by Roger Moore, the plaque had been created 18 months previously. (Wikipedia)
