That Baltimore Girl
When I was 7, That Girl starring Marlo Thomas was my number one hero. When I was grown up, that was how I wanted my life to be. I too would be a young woman with my own apartment in New York City, and have an understanding father and a cute boyfriend, both of whom encouraged and supported my acting career. I watched That Girl and I loved her sense of confidence and independence.
Many years later, when disappear fear's first Rounder Records album was released, it won the GLAAD Award for Album of The Year, previously won the prior year by Elton John - so we were in daunting company. It was 1995 and we flew out to the awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Marlo Thomas was the MC for the event. Meeting her that night and for that occasion was a dream come true. This is my tribute to her.
