Who is lola falana dating

I remember Lola Falana from when I was a kid in the 70's, and knew she was a great dancer and singer, but I don't think I ever realized how fabulously fantastic this multi talented lady actually was. She can dance, sing, act, and her comedic timing is pretty good.These DVDs captures her 4 legendary specials which exploded on network television in 1976.

Her mother escorted her to night clubs to perform when she was in junior high.Although, Diana Ross had hits before Lola Falana and was a star in her own right, you can't help but see how much stronger Lola Falana was in comparison as an all around performer.The Lola Falana show aired when prime-time varitey shows were all the rage.In 1966 he had his own TV variety show, titled The Sammy Davis Jr. Davis's career slowed in the late 1960s, but he had a hit record with "The Candy Man" in 1972 and became a star in Las Vegas, earning him the nickname "Mister Show Business." Davis was a victim of racism throughout his life, particularly during the pre-Civil Rights era, and was a large financial supporter of the Civil Rights Movement. I'm a one-eyed Negro Jew." After reuniting with Sinatra and Dean Martin in 1987, Davis toured with them and Liza Minnelli internationally, before he died of throat cancer in 1990.Davis had a complex relationship with the black community, and drew criticism after publicly supporting President Richard Nixon in 1972 (although he later returned to being a Democrat). He died in debt to the Internal Revenue Service, Davis was awarded the Spingarn Medal by the NAACP and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award for his television performances.Davis became an overnight sensation following a nightclub performance at Ciro's (in West Hollywood) after the 1951 Academy Awards. In 1954, he lost his left eye in a car accident, and several years later, he converted to Judaism. In 1960, he appeared in the Rat Pack film Ocean's 11.

After a starring role on Broadway in Mr Wonderful (1956), he returned to the stage in 1964's Golden Boy.

Once you check this DVD you will see why Lola, an eloquent but unpretentious consummate performer, was once the highest-paid female performer in Las Vegas.
