English: June Christy (November 20, 1925 – June 21, 1990), born Shirley Luster, was an American singer, known for her sweet, velvet-smooth vocals and for her work in the cool jazz genre. Her success as a singer began with The Stan Kenton Orchestra. She pursued a solo career from 1947 and is best known for her debut album Something Cool. Upon her death, she was hailed as "one of the finest and most neglected singers of her time."
