Sally Sweetland (born September 23, 1911) is an American soprano singer and teacher.

In the 1940s, she provided voice dubbing for singing voices in movies, notably for Joan Leslie in several films including Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942) and Rhapsody in Blue (1945), as well as for Brenda Marshall, Martha Vickers and Joan Fontaine in other films of that era.

She was featured as solo artist on television programs such as The Perry Como Show and The Ed Sullivan Show. In 1953 she duetted on the song I'm Walking Behind You with Eddie Fisher, which reached number one on the UK Singles Chart.[1]

Sweetland later worked as a vocal coach with her husband Lee. Amongst their students were Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy.[2] She celebrated her 100th birthday in 2011, crediting her secret to longevity as laughter.[3]

Sweetland resides in Banning, California.[4]
