    • Annette: (referring to her self-titled serial on 'The Mickey Mouse Club') The serial started my singing career quite by accident. I was doing the series playing a little country farm girl, and sang a song called "How Will I Know My Love," on a hayride. It was suppose to be humorous. After the show aired, I remember Walt Disney came to me one day and said, "We've got to put this out on a single. We're getting fan letters like crazy, kids want to buy it." And I said, "I don't sing." He said, "Well, I'm signing you to a recording contract, young lady. You're singing." I said, "Yes, sir," and that's what started my singing career. It was so unexpected.
