Louanne and Lena Zavaroni .....

by old fan (no login)


I watched that cute Louanne video posted below, and loved it...I reread Jon Merrill's Louanne page, which describes her yellow dress being patched out of two older dresses, and the ribbons being from an old gift box...apparently she had only one good outfit...she was emancipated by the court at age 16...her early life was really sad (parts of it) I also read that she was inspired to sing "Ma !" on the Gong Show, by UK child star Lena Zavaroni, who had a lot of talent and a VERY sad life, dying from anorexia...if you're interested, google her...I had never heard of her, and it is interesting that she was Louanne's inspiration...There are a lot of Lena's YouTubes, as well, available. It was such a tragic ending to a talented life.
