More about LaVern
With "Tweedlee Dee," a huge hit single in 1954 on both the pop and R&B charts, LaVern became one of the first women to capture the essence of rock and roll. With her rich musical background and flamboyant personality, LaVern was a natural figure to help usher in the rock and roll era.
