On the eve of her death, Grace had sung in concert before a packed Copenhagen audience of over 4,000. She had just boarded a flight to Stockholm Sweden when the KLM DC3 plane crashed and exploded upon takeoff.

 

It is claimed that Elvis Presley's "Graceland" mansion was named in honor of her.

Silverbluestar - She died in the same plane crash where the prince of Sweden (who would one day have become King), Gustaf Adolf, perished. (3 years ago)
margief_60 - You know, my mother told me that her second cousin used to bring Grace Moore to their house back in the 1930`s and early 40`s and she would sing in their living room and the whole house would shake. My mother`s little brother used to scream and cry because it scared him. Cool huh? (6 years ago)
