of you are familiar with the great music released by Lucy
in the late 70's and
early 80's ... Who could forget "Living
In A Different World", "Nights Without You", "I
Love You's" and so many
others that touched us
and brought a tear to our
wondered... Whatever became of that beautiful young girl from
the 1981 Dutch Eurovison Songfestival with the the 'silky' voice and
the captivating Texas smile? For years there was no word ....
Then sadly, in February of 2006 an anonymous looking notice appeared
the Dutch city of Hertogenbosch (where she had lived with her husband
her married name of Willems). The announcement said that
Lucy was dead...
for full obituary...)
Some time back, my good friend ( Dutch DJ) Peter Timmerman
mentioned that he found it
appalling that this great artist had been
relegated to the dusty shelves of history. He was determined
this wasn't going to be
the end of the story...
Someone had to do something...
Peter rose to the occasion and put together a tribute celebrating Lucy's
music for his "Alternation" show
on Radio Enkhuizen (where over
the years her
found a 'comfortable home') and
once again found
new, receptive ears and an idea
This was the 'genesis' for this website... a place where Lucy's friends
fans could come together to celebrate a sometimes troubled life...
but undeniably made richer by her all
time among us...
This is for you Lucy...
