Bessie Brown (Cleveland, Ohio 1895 - 1955), also known as "The Original" Bessie Brown, was a blues and classic jazz, and Cabaret singer. She sometimes recorded under the pseudonyms of Sadie Green, Caroline Lee, and possibly Helen Richards, and should not be confused with her namesake, the Bessie Brown who recorded blues duets with George W. Williams. She was active as a recording artist from 1925 to 1928. She left showbusiness in 1932 and had three children before dying of a heart attack in 1955.
