I remember seeing her in the movies when I was little and she just disappeared. Yuma was before her time for I am sure if she was young and singing today she would be "hot and very popular"!!!
My gosh - you were writing of her the other day and I was wondering what became of her and that wonderful voice.
Vale Yuma.
