Morgan was an American, but first really became popular after having been discovered by a French impressario. She moved to France and enjoyed success throughout Europe before returning to the USA. During her time in France, she recorded a number of Bécaud songs, including the first English version of his "Et Maintenant," as "What Now My Love" (with English lyrics by Carl Sigman) some months after Bécaud recorded his original French version. In addition to his frequent on-stage performances, Elvis made a home recording of the song in 1966 and that version can be found on "The Home Recordings."
