The babe who rocked Paradise by the Dashboard Light, the maiden who entranced The Pirates of Penzance, the gal Letterman called “The Sweetheart of Rock & Roll” – brought audiences to their feet, and a leading man to his knee…
After rocking a world tour and wowing Broadway, Karla was romantically linked to an Actor, a Singer, a Producer, a Writer, a Director, a Musician, a Composer, an Athlete, a Photographer, and a Professor. Luckily, they were all named Robby Benson.
One of MTV’s first video stars, and a popular performer on You Tube, Karla recorded two solo albums, “Is This A Cool World or What?” and “Wake ‘Em Up in Tokyo” – plus the hit single “We Are Not Alone” for the movie The Breakfast Club, then she co-starred with her husband in the movie Modern Love.
