From trade magazine article dated June 1952:
"We had the privilege this week of watching two artists at work in a recording session. One was the up-and-coming songstress Wini Brown, who can't help but become one of the nation's really big stars with the talent she displays. The other was Bobby Shad, whose handling of the session was artistry in itself. Look for Wini's version of "Here In My Heart" to create many new fans for the gal."

(NOTE: Bobby Shad was Mercury Records' rhythm & blues head at the time)
