  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1900
    Born
    She was born as Helen Riggins in 1900 in Danville, Illinois.
    More Details Hide Details Her father Frank Riggins, was a farmer in Davis Township, Fountain County, Indiana. After her mother, Lulu Lang Riggins, divorced and remarried, she changed the last name to "Morgan". Her mother's second marriage ended in divorce, and she moved to Chicago with her daughter. Helen never finished school beyond the eighth grade, and worked a variety of jobs just to get by. She worked as an extra in films. By the age of twenty, Morgan had taken voice lessons and started singing in speakeasies in Chicago. Her voice was not fashionable during the 1920s for the kind of songs that she specialized in, but nevertheless she became a wildly popular torch singer. A draped-over-the-piano look became her signature while performing at Billy Rose's Backstage Club in 1925.
