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!


After her 70s heyday she did jingles for various commercials. Her most famous was her singing the jingle 'The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup' for Folgers Crystal coffee. See more »
