Page died on New Year's Day in Encinitas, Calif., her rep said in a statement sent to CBSNews.com
Page, who was to be honored by the Recording Academy in a pre-Grammy Lifetime Achievement Awards ceremony on Feb. 9, was one of the top-selling female singers in history with more than 100 million record sales. She created a distinctive sound for the music industry in 1947 by overdubbing her own voice when she didn't have enough money to hire backup singers for the single, "Confess."
She had 24 records in the top 10, including four that reached No. 1. She was also the first singer to have television programs on all three major networks, including "The Patti Page Show" on ABC. - [CBS News]
