Lulu Roman


Lulu Roman
She's a living legend...a long-time singer, songwriter, comedienne, philanthropist, and all-American sweetheart. There are countless "rags to riches" success stories that are familiar to us. However, some lives cannot be summed as simply as that.

Life has brought LuLu Roman many successes , but also, more than her share of disappointments and hardships. Famous for her sidesplitting humor and jovial disposition, a lesser-known story lies behind those clear, radiant eyes, which have often been filled with tears of both pain and joy.

People know LuLu as the most requested female cast member of the long running hit television series, "Hee Haw". Many know her as the accomplished and celebrated songwriter; and as the singer who has been successfully making records for over 20 years.

Few know that Lulu was born with a thyroid dysfunction in a home for unwed mothers and quickly placed in an orphanage. It was there that her weight problem furthered her pain, preventing her adoption and making her the center of teasing by the other children. It was also during this time that LuLu learned to use her sense of humor as a defense.

That defense later evolved into a highly successful career as an actress and comedienne with a lead role on "Hee Haw." Success and wealth, however proved poisonous to the actress who began her career in her early twenties. Drug addiction led LuLu on a downward spiral that resulted in her arrest and eventual removal from the show in 1971.

LuLu's search for happiness and acceptance, which had almost led her to her personal destruction, instead, led her to God. Her strong faith, combined with positive changes in her life eventually resulted in a full pardon from the Governor of Texas and reinstatement on "Hee Haw," (where she would stay until the show ended production in the mid 90's.) It was her new found faith in God that led her to begin using a talent that had been laying dormant for many years - her voice.

In 2002 Lulu's 16th album, a collection of hits and favorites called Lulu INSPIRED, was nominated for a Dove award. Her newest project is the highly anticipated "Orphan Girl", which Lulu says is "the album I am most proud of in my entire career".  AVAILABLE NOW AT AMAZON.COM
