Born in Bergen County, New Jersey, Karen Savoca’s baby diary reads “20 months, knows 6 songs.” At the age of five, Karen was the emcee of her kindergarten play. Karen’s mom had been a big-band singer and the featured vocalist on a nightly TV show in Fresno, so it was no surprise that her little girl was always dancing and singing. At the age of ten, Karen bought her first album… it was “Life,” by Sly and The Family Stone.
