Florence Foster-Jenkins.  She was an ambitious American matron who always wanted to “go on the stage.”  When her father died (1909) she inherited the money she needed to support her terrible, awesome, magical musical career.  Every year, apparently, she performed at the Ritz-Carlton.  In 1944 she finally hired Carnegie Hall for a sold-out charity performance of really really terrible arias.
My favourite story involves an accident in a taxi-cab, in 1943.  Rather than suing the driver, Mrs. Foster-Jenkins found her voice so improved that she sent the man a box of cigars.
