Personal Quote:

Music has really been my whole life. I have been very lucky, being able to make a living most of my life singing and performing. Oh yes, there were those odd jobs as a waitress in Manhattan when I was a teenager, or later doing temp work to fill in for leaner times, but all in all I truly have been blessed to be able to do what I love and getting well paid for it!

Trivia:

Vicki not only nailed the lead vocal on her big hit song "Turn the Beat Around" on the first take, but also sings and arranged the backing vocals on the song as well. See more »
