Margaret Whiting (Detroit, 22 de julio de 1924 – Englewood, Nueva Jersey, 10 de enero de 2011[1] ) fue una cantante estadounidense de big band y de pop tradicional; su sentido de la improvisación y del swing la aproximaron en ocasiones al ámbito del jazz.

Margaret Whiting fue una de las cantantes que dominaron la escena musical pop estadounidense de los años cuarenta y cincuenta. La cualidades distintivas de su voz, clara y con un punto de inocencia, son especialmente reconocibles en su interpretación de baladas como It Might As Well Be Spring y Moonlight in Vermont.
