Timi Yuro

When I come up with a character name I usually do a Google search for it. I was checking on the name Timi, and came across Timi Yuro, (born Rosemary Timotea Aurro Yuro) who passed away a few years ago. She was an Italian-American singer who had a single big hit in the late 50s Cry. She had a limited range I think, at least as she got older, and a vocal sound that had many listeners believing she was African-American.

And to think I've never heard of her before.

But I kind of dig her (and she could be quite pretty) so I may indeed borrow her full stage name for one of my characters. But there are some other Timi's out there, so more research...
