Margaret Germano, better known as Peggy Mann (September 27, 1919 – summer 1988), was an American Big Band singer who was prominent in the 1930s and 1940s. She worked with the likes of Henry Halstead, Ben Pollack, Larry Clinton, and Teddy Powell,[1] and also as a solo act, before retiring from the music industry in the early 1950s. Mann was born in Yonkers, New York. A review in Billboard magazine referred to her "captivating manner that has made her a favorite song stylist."[2]

Mann was an replacement singer for Joan Edwards on the radio version of Your Hit Parade.[3][4]
