Marcia Blank better known as Marcie Blane, is an American pop singer.

Blane was born in Brooklyn, New York.

As a favor to a friend, Marcie recorded a demo for Seville Records. The song was "Bobby's Girl". Released in the fall of 1962, "Bobby's Girl" made #2 on the Cash Box chart and #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was later recorded for the German market in their language. It sold over one million copies by 1963, and was awarded a gold disc.

 In the United Kingdom the song was covered by Susan Maughan who had the hit. "What Does A Girl Do?", the follow-up single, rose to #82 on the Hot 100 list in early 1963, and was Blane's only other appearance on any Billboard chart.
