Micki Marlo (August 12, 1928 – September 20, 2016)[1] was a popular singer and model, best known in the 1950s, who received attention for both her singing and her beauty.

She was a member of WPEN Philadelphia's "950 Club", a radio precursor of American Bandstand.[2] She worked the variety show circuit in the 1950s, appearing on the original Tonight Show with Steve Allen. Micki was a member of the cast of Ziegfeld Follies of 1957[3] and recorded a duet with Paul Anka, "What You've Done To Me", that same year. Her ABC-Paramount album, Married I Can Always Get, featured her on the cover in a cheesecake photo wearing a low-cut, bare-shouldered wedding dress. The liner notes make frequent references to her physical charms.[4] "Little By Little", a Nappy Brown cover, was her only hit. In the early 1960s she appeared on the game show Charge Account, and paired up with Ed Hurst again to co-host Summer Time On The Pier, another live dance show, this time from Atlantic City, New Jersey, for WRCV-TV.

Marlo died in Dade County, Florida, on September 20, 2016, at the age of 88.[5][1]
