Personal Quote:

I'm not necessarily coming from a religious standpoint, but I guess there is a lot of questioning in my songs. Sometimes people come to my shows and think I'm a Christian artist and they put their hands up in the air, like they do. But first of all I'm a Jewish girl from the valley, and I'm from Los Angeles. It's funny to be misinterpreted.


She once appeared on the TV game show Card Sharks (1978), hosted by Bob Eubanks, as a contestant during a teen or junior week of the game. See more »
