Vikki Carr Watch
Name: Vikki Carr

Claim To Fame: If you're over 50 then the name Vikki Carr instantly conjures up the thought of singing. Vikki has had a long and successful career. She has topped the Latino and American charts.... Actually, Vikki is starting to be known to a whole new generation. There have been so many re-releases of her CDs which have been extremely strong in sales. I'm not real familiar with Vikki myself, but when I hear her name I instantly think of the movie 'Moonstruck'. If you remember, Vincent Gardenia had a big crush on Vikki Carr and used to play her album all the time... much to the chagrin of his wife played by Olympia Dukakis.

Where Is She Now: In 2002, she appeared to great acclaim in a Los Angeles production of the Stephen Sondheim musical Follies, which also featured Hal Linden, Patty Duke and Harry Groener.

In 2006, Carr made a cameo appearance in a straight-to-video thriller called 'Puerto Vallarta Squeeze'.

Respected as both an artist and a humanitarian, she devotes time to many charities including the United Way, the American Lung Association, the Muscular Dystrophy Association and St. Jude's Hospital. For 22 years she held benefit concerts to support Holy Cross High School in San Antonio, Texas.

Vikki now lives in San Antonio, Texas with her husband who is a doctor.

She continues to do concert dates throughout the year. You can check her website (listed below) for a listing of appearances.

She appeared on the PBS 'Fiesta Mexicana' show in June 2008.

Vikki will be singing live on the Latin Grammys November 13, 2008 on Univision TV (Spanish)

Mrs Carr is a true philanthropist. At an early age she had already started her scholarship foundation to send high schoolers to college. It was thirty two years ago that I recieved one of her scholarships and she must have been in her early thirties. She is a true patriot and a great human being.
