  • Al Jolson (born Asa Yoelson; May 26, 1886 – October 23, 1950) was a Jewish Lithuanian-born American singer, film actor, and comedian. At the peak of his career, he was dubbed "The World's Greatest Entertainer".His performing style was brash and extroverted, and he popularized a large number of songs that benefited from his "shamelessly sentimental, melodramatic approach". Numerous well-known singers were influenced by his music, including Bing Crosby David Bowie, Bob Dylan and others, Dylan once referred to him as "somebody whose life I can feel". Broadway critic Gilbert Seldes compared him to the Greek god Pan, claiming that Jolson represented "the concentration of our national health and gaiety."In the 1930s, he was America's most famous and highest-paid entertainer. Between 1911 and 1928, Jolson had nine sell-out Winter Garden shows in a row, more than 80 hit records, and 16 national and international tours. Although he is best remembered today as the star of the first 'talking picture', The Jazz Singer (1927), he later starred in a series of successful musical films throughout the 1930s. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Jolson became the first star to entertain troops overseas during World War II. After a period of inactivity, his stardom returned with The Jolson Story (1946). Larry Parks played Jolson, with the singer dubbing for Parks. The formula was repeated in the sequel, Jolson Sings Again (1949). In 1950 he again became the first star to entertain GIs on active service in the Korean War, performing 42 shows in 16 days. He died just weeks after returning to the U.S., partly owing to the physical exertion of performing. Defense Secretary George Marshall afterward awarded the Medal of Merit to Jolson's family.According to the St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture, "Jolson was to jazz, blues, and ragtime what Elvis Presley was to rock 'n' roll." Being the first popular singer to make a spectacular "event" out of singing a song, he became a “rock star” before the dawn of rock music. His specialty was performing on stage runways extending out into the audience. He would run up and down the runway and across the stage, "teasing, cajoling, and thrilling the audience," often stopping to sing to individual members; all the while the "perspiration would be pouring from his face, and the entire audience would get caught up in the ecstasy of his performance." According to music historian Larry Stempel, "No one had heard anything quite like it before on Broadway." Author Stephen Banfield agreed, writing that Jolson's style was "arguably the single most important factor in defining the modern musical...."He enjoyed performing in blackface makeup, a theatrical convention since the mid 19th century. With his unique and dynamic style of singing black music, such as jazz and blues, he was later credited with single-handedly introducing African-American music to white audiences. As early as 1911 he became known for fighting against anti-black discrimination on Broadway.

  • Asa Yoelson (Seredzius (Litouwen), 26 mei 1886 – San Francisco (VS), 23 oktober 1950), beter bekend als Al Jolson, was een populaire zanger en een superster op Broadway, radio en film. Hij was geboren in Seredzius, Litouwen als zoon van een Russische Jood. Het bekendst is hij voor zijn optreden in de film de The Jazz Singer uit 1927. Dit was de eerste film met geluid die een groot commercieel succes had. Zijn carrière op Broadway is ongeëvenaard qua lengte, bijna 30 jaar (van 1911 tot 1940), en populariteit.Jolie, zoals hij door zijn vrienden genoemd werd, was de eerste entertainer die een miljoen platen verkocht had. Na het verlaten van Broadway richtte Jolson zich op radio-optredens. Deze stonden altijd in de top 10. Jolson maakte een geweldige comeback in de geschiedenis van de showbusiness toen Columbia Pictures in 1946 een biografische film maakte over Jolson, The Jolson Story. In deze film speelde Larry Parks de rol van Jolson. De film was een groot succes (het was de film met de hoogste opbrengst sinds Gone with the Wind) en het leidde er toe dat een hele nieuwe generatie geboeid werd door de stem en het charisma van Jolson. In 1948 werd Jolson in een opiniepeiling uitgeroepen tot de Populairste mannelijke vocalist.Hij stierf op 23 oktober 1950 in San Francisco en is begraven op de begraafplaats in het Helling Herdenkingspark in Culver City, Californië. Op de dag dat hij stierf, werden om hem te eren de lichten op Broadway voor 10 minuten uitgeschakeld.
