Joey HeathertonIs there anyone else that remembers this blond and very talented lady? I remember her dancing on many of the variety shows that were on in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Dean Martin, Ed Sullivan, and Andy Williams, just to name a few. I learned she was with the Bob Hope USO Tour from 65 - 77. That's a big commitment.
I don't remember this commercial but it does show her style. Evidently by the 1970s, her career was slowing down.
I remember her dancing more than her singing, but after looking at a few things on Youtube, I wonder why.
That girl can sing! So what happened? Where did she go and how much did we miss because of it? I read on Wikipedia that in 1992 she appeared nude in Playboy. I venture to say she must have needed the money. It's a mystery at which talent has a long life and which doesn't. To me, her talent deserved more.
Of course there are photos of an aged Joey. You would still know her. She was born in 1944. You can do the math. I chose to let her stay young here and to let her show what we've missed.
