|Born||May 14, 1944|
Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
McKinnon's first and biggest selling album, Voice of an Angel, was a collection of folk material, but she has also recorded ballads, torch songs, and songs by notable pop songwriters such as Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Gordon Lightfoot and Buffy Sainte-Marie. She has also been a stage actress, appearing in Canadian productions of Turvey, The Wizard of Oz, and My Fair Lady.
McKinnon married actor and comedian Don Harron in 1969; the couple divorced in 2003.
Her sister, Patrician-Anne McKinnon, began her singing career on CBC Television at age 13 and had a Canadian hit single entitled "Blue Lipstick" in 1965. "Blue Lipstick" was written especially for her by American composer P.F. Sloan, who also wrote for Terry Black. She was featured on both "Voice of an Angel" albums. Patrician-Anne's career was often interrupted owing to Hodgkins disease which caused her death at the age of 53 of lymphatic cancer on October 10, 2001 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
