Happy Birthday Published
Back in 1924 the song “Happy Birthday To You”, was published by Claydon Sunny of Clayton F. Summy Company under the request of employee Jessica Hill.
The melody and lyrics were written by Jessica’s two other sisters – Mildred J. Hill and Patty Smith Hill. The song was originally created as a classroom greeting song titled “Good Morning to All” before it was changed by unknown sources to “Happy Birthday to You.”
