It’s apt in every way but one.

lennon sisters

The Lennon Sisters
April 27th - Sunday
3:00pm
Jennie T. Anderson Theatre
Cobb County Civic Center Complex

 

They were a young, crisply harmonic quartet of sisters who called themselves simply The Lennon Sisters and they made their singing TV debut in 1955 on Lawrence Welk's old-fashioned variety show with sixteen-year-old Dianne (Dee Dee), fourteen-year-old Peggy, twelve-year-old Kathy, and nine-year-old Janet Lennon on board. Their a cappella version of "He" proved a scene-stealing success and America fell hard for these four attractive little innocents and their angelic blend. Welk professionally adopted the girls and The Lennon Sisters became regulars on his show every Saturday night for the next thirteen years. Dubbed "America's Sweethearts of Song," they recorded their first of many albums entitled "Let's Get Acquainted" in May of 1957.

 

In the early 70s, The Lennon Sisters became regular guests of Andy Williams and his television show and subsequently performed with him in Las Vegas on a frequent basis.

 

Broaching on a five-decade career, they eventually found a steady home again in Branson, Missouri, at (where else?) the Welk Champagne Theatre where they continue to charm loyal, nostalgic, highly enthusiastic crowds.
