Personal Quote:

I may be working in a club one night and here comes a lady that will come up and tell me her problems, and lay it on my shoulder as though I'm Dear Abby. So I've become Dear Abby for these people. I get a story out of what she's saying, and put myself in that situation and what would I do about this man or this situation. And I write a song about it.


When she was 13, she moved to Chicago to live with her older brother and sang with a gospel group, the Sacred Five. She began writing poetry and songs. She took the name LaSalle from a French character in a comic strip. See more »
