Profile Bio Text
Herbert Khaury (April 12, 1932 – November 30, 1996) better known by the stage name Tiny Tim, was an American singer, ukulele player, and musical archivist. He was most famous for his rendition of "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" sung in a distinctive high falsetto/vibrato voice (though his normal singing voice was baritone). He was generally regarded as a novelty act, though his records indicate his wide knowledge of American songs. He had no official middle name, though some web sites report it to be "Butros", his father`s first name. His headstone reads "Khaury/Herbert B/Tiny Tim/1932-1996". Much of his work was reviving songs and artists of past generations, including early recording artists such as Billy Murray, Ada Jones, and Henry Burr. He had a comprehensive knowledge of pre-rock popular music, an aspect of his performance that was little understood when he was at the height of his popularity.
Tiny Tim`s flamboyant stage persona belied a conservative, traditional belief system about religion and marriage. Tim was born to a Polish Jewish mother and a Lebanese Maronite Catholic father, and was raised in his father`s faith. After attending a Jack Wyrtzen rally, became a devout Christian; on several of his records and interviews, he often proclaimed his devotion to Jesus. His first marriage (to Miss Vicki) ended in part due to problems arising from his conservative views, stemming from his interpretation of the Bible regarding a woman`s role in relationships. As Miss Vicki explained in interviews, their disparities in age and world view made her feel stifled. His second marriage (on June 26, 1984, to Jan Alweiss, from whom he was divorced in 1995) reportedly took place in a Catholic church.
