Before there was an 'Alicia Keys' or even
a 'Mariah Carey' -- there was 'Carly Simon'
A QUOTE FROM AN INTERVIEW WITH
MULTIRACIAL SINGER CARLY SIMON
Carly's Quote: "... my face is more acceptable in a way
now than when I first came on the scene ...
... I'm part-Black.
My Mother's-mother was Black.
I'm Jewish, Black, Cuban, and French."
Pictures: The link below is to a `You Tube' Video which
provides a few pictures of Carly's Mixed-Race
mom, Mrs. Andrea-Louise Heinemann-Simon.
Announcements: According to sources, on August 4, 1934 the
`New York Times' headline,' stated "Andrea
