Bill Bailey (Bill Bailey)

Bill Bailey

Singer, Dancer, and Actor. Brother of legendary singer Pearl Bailey. He appeared in the films, “Rhythm And Blues Revue” (1955), “Cabin in the Sky” (1943), and “Going Native” (1936). An interesting side note, Bailey can be seen tap dancing in the 1955 tribute film to dancer Bill Bojangles “Harlem Variety Revue,” in which he is seen finishing his act by doing the ‘Moon Walk’ off the stage, a step later made hugely popular by entertainer Michael Jackson.
