The first sounds Lynn Harper ever made probably saved her life. Found abandoned in a Berkeley, California dumpster, her voice brought rescuers and adoption into a loving home where she was raised by two people, one white and Jewish, one black and Baptist. Among her adopted relatives was the Brazilian super-star, Carmen Miranda, who died before she could finish teaching Lynn the samba.
At an early age Lynn learned about the value of communication as a movie actress that launched a recurring role on the television series, My Three Sons. Her musical talents as a Country Western singer steered a nomination as “Most Promising” by the Academy of Country and Western Music.
