Vicki Sue Robinson


Music has really been my whole life. I have been very lucky, being able to make a living most of my life singing and performing. Oh yes, there were those odd jobs as a waitress in Manhattan when I was a teenager, or later doing Temp work to fill in for leaner times, but all in all I truly have been blessed to be able to do what I love and getting paid well for it!, 2000
