 Elaine McKenna (24 March 1937 – 6 January 1992) was an Australian singer, who became known for her television appearances throughout the 1950s and 1960s, particularly in Melbourne where she was associated with GTV-9. For her television work, McKenna won the Logie for Best Singer at the 1961 Logie Awards.

McKenna relocated to the United States of America in late 1961. She appeared on The Bob Newhart Show in 1961.

In 1963, McKenna married American actor and performer Tim Evans. Although the couple had planned to get married at St Patrick's Cathedral in Melbourne during the Australian summer, they were married in Texas in October 1963. McKenna died in 1992.   Thanks to Sunshine
