Remembered for her Swedish-language versions of such popular songs as 'Walking My Baby Back Home' and 'Hit the Road, Jack,' this twentieth-century jazz vocalist collaborated with such world-famous jazz musicians as Quincy Jones and Louis Armstrong.
Her early albums (recorded in the late 1950s and early 1960s) include Swedish Sensation and Ahh! Monica.
As a result of physically debilitating scoliosis, she ended her performing career in her early sixties.
She was born Eva Monica Nilsson in Hagfors, Sweden. She died in Stockholm at the age of sixty-seven as the result of an apartment fire.
One of the highlights of her career was the 1964 recording of an album called Waltz for Debby with jazz saxophonist Bill Evans.
