James Melton (January 2, 1904 – April 21, 1961), a popular singer in the 1920s and early 1930s, later began a career as an operatic singer when tenor voices went out of style in popular music around 1932-35. His singing talent was similar to that of Richard Crooks, John Charles Thomas or Nelson Eddy.
Melton has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one for radio and the other for recording. He died in New York City from pneumonia.
