Hippie folk songstress from the Ironside episode "The Man Who Believed" (11/23/1967). She commits suicide jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge, or was it... MURDER?! Ironside (Raymond Burr) investigates.

Her sold-out gig at club The Psychedelic Daffodil is instead a morose affair, where a reel-to-reel tape is played of her singing "Even When You Cry," co-written by Quincy Jones, and a 1968 single for Lou Rawls.

Played by Marcia Strassman, later Mrs. Kotter on Welcome Back, Kotter. She actually cut a handful of singles herself. Thanks to Mark Lungo.
