Sometime in the 1970s, Vikki Carr lost her mainstream recording contract and as a result, she transformed herself into a Latin singer. The problem was that she wasn't the hot young thing on the block by the time her shift in audiences happened.
|by Edyie Gorme||reply 11||04/16/2011|
In 2002, she embarked on a comeback tour in South America - huge audiences flocking to see her in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. They made her an honorary citizen of Uruguay and gave her a beach house in Punta del Este next door to Mrs. Ken Lay's estate. Sadly, Vikki lost everything in a lawsuit when Lisa Beamer found out she had written and perfromed a patriotic song called "Let's Roll!" Beamer even took the Punta del Este home.

Her Dad Otto Carr developed the very first Ottomobile better known as the Car. He was in the process of patenting it when Henry Ford beat him to it.

Vikki Carr spent all night at Arlington National Cemetery placing flags on all the graves. She was totally exhausted so, around 6:30 a.m., she reclined on a marble bench and fell asleep. Hours later, someone gently shook her awake. It was Barak Obama who was in the cemetery to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns. He plucked a poppy off the wreath and gave it to Vikki for her scrapbook. Then Michelle Obama removed her pink bedjacket (worn to Buckingham Palace last week) and gave it to Vikki for a pillow so she could go back to sleep.

Vikki Carr is investigating a case of missing meat in Omaha. In the past few months, semi-trucks loaded with Nebraska beef were stolen in Omaha. Carr isn't saying much about the case, but victims are speaking out to protect their product.
People in the meat industry said they think it's a kind of coordinated effort because there are serious security measures in place to get something like beef from producer to its destination. However, Carr said three large scale cons -- with one con netting $170,000 in beef -- were reported in the last couple of weeks.
Vikki Carr, whose job is to track beef shipments from producer to destination, said a con man posed as a real life carrier and picked up a shipment from her Omaha office. "I looked it up on this website, and everything looks legitimate," said Carr, "Sunday, when the first drop was supposed to come off, they just quit answering their phones."
Miss Carr said that within the last few hours, she's learned that the con stretches farther than what she originally thought. Beef brokers, meanwhile, are spreading the word because they want the seemingly sophisticated con to stop. "I'm a small business. I don't have a fraud department," the Carr said.

Vikki Carr was one of the great contemporary singers of the 60's and the 70's. I met her in 1976 and I was a very dedicated fan! She has/had a recording contract from Columbia to record in Spanish and only does concerts in the South (warm weather). She's a decent and kind professional - she even filled in for Johnny Carson a few times! he's known for the hit song "It Must Be Him" (Liberty Records).
Vikki Carr was the person that started the notification of bad second-hand smoke, which started the end of smoking in public places! Vikki began to get a throat condition due to smoke in Las Vegas show rooms.
NOTE: It was Vicky Lawrence on Carol Burnett. Also, her name is Vikki Carr... not Vicky or Vickie or Vicki.
