Bertha Breadsacker?

Bertha-BB, SingSnap member

* Bertha-BB
The Great Pretender

* Bertha Breadsacker
No Money Down

A little big mystery for you today.

1/ "The Great Pretender" has been found on http://www.singsnap.com a karaoke website (Register for free access to singing and recording thousands of karaoke songs, millions of recordings to listen to and entertainment that lasts a life time...)
The singer is Bertha-BB (that's her picture (?) on top of this post.  Her  real name is Bertha Breadsacker. Bertha is 76 years old (in 2009, I assume), is located in Louisiana / USA and has been a SingSnap member since September 9, 2009.

Her other karaoke songs can be found here

2/ "No Money Down", the Chuck Berry song, has been played on WFMU radio three times and credited to Bertha Breadsacker on Wholewheat Records.    I've not been able to find any evidence of  the existence of this record.  The singer sounds younger that Bertha BB and the recording, older

Are they real? Are both a joke?  Or only one is a joke? Then which one?  Your info or even just your opinion — as always — welcomed!

  1. It’s a real 45 record I have it, even if it’s the only copy known I have it.
