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” – has brought her 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 now 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 co-starred with her husband in the movie Modern Love.
Before stepping out of the spotlight into the role of Mrs. Robby Benson, mother of Lyric & Zephyr Benson, Karla won many fans. Since appearing on YouTube and social media, she has gained even more. You can trace Karla’s career on Wikipedia, or IMDb… and right here.
“DeVito’s bold vocal style is a shotgun wedding of Broadway bravado and reckless rock.”
