Edna Hicks

EDNA HICKS was an American Blues singer and musician. She was born Edna Landreaux and was the half sister of Lizzie Miles.

She was popular in black vaudeville in the American Midwest in the late 1910s and 1920s. She appeared often in Chicago and Cincinnati, and made recordings for seven different record labels such as Victor, Vocalion, Columbia, Gennett, Brunswick, Ajax, and Paramount between the years 1923-1924.

Unfortunately, she passed away at the age of 29 from a gasoline accident, where she was severely burned while helping her husband fill their automobile when a candle she was holding ignited.
