Rita Moss, whose real name was Loreta L. Waynesboro, was born in Akron, Ohio, on July 4, 1918.
Although she took piano lessons as a child, she was a mostly self-taught multi-instrumentalist
who could play piano, organ and drums.
Eventually she became a singer too, with an impressive 4-octave vocal range.

 “Rita Moss, the one of a kind, the Girl With the Flaxen Voice, has beguiled me 
since the first time I heard her. This unique facility of hers is as natural as 
breathing in and breathing out.”
In an article dated June 1952, Jet magazine wrote that there was finally a rival
for Yma Sumac “in cute Rita Moss, who has a sensational fouroctave
 range voice. She is due for a bigtime treatment.
