SING FOR YOUR SUPPERWith Valentine's Day around the corner, this could be a timely opportunity to start your singing career by delivering SINGING TELEGRAMS.
Depending on the location and costume requirements, a performer makes between $60-500 a gig. If you're a struggling actor or singer or just have an outgoing personality and a good voice, then this job could be for you! How did the singing telegram get its start?
In the 1930's, telegrams were usually associated with death and other bad news. In 1933, a fan sent Hollywood star Rudy Vallee a birthday greeting via telegram and Western Union's PR Director had an operator sing the message to Mr. Vallee over the phone. And that's how it all began! At that time, most singing telegrams were delivered in person since few of the lucky recipients had phones.
