Images from another time: A lotta' Larson

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2006

Pop star Nicolette Larson sings her signature song, "Lotta Love" during one of her two concerts at Centennial Hall. The 40,000-foot facility was dedicated June 11, 1983, with a ribbon cutting by former Juneau Mayor Bill Overstreet and Gov. Bill Sheffield and ex-governors Keith Miller, William Egan and Walter Hickel. After all the speeches by politicians and other luminaries, the night belonged to Larson and her band. She was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 1979. She worked as a session vocalist for many popular singers before her break-out year in 1979. She died in 1997 in Los Angeles after suffering a cerebral edema at 45.
