BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982
Pia Zadora (born May 4, 1954) is an American actress and singer. After working as a child actress on Broadway, in regional theater, and in the film Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964), she came to national attention in 1981 when, following her starring role in the highly criticized Butterfly, she won a Golden Globe Award as New Star of the Year.
When her film career failed to take off, she became a singer of popular standards and made several successful albums backed by a symphonic orchestra; as a singer she earned a measure of respect from critics who had previously written her off as an actress.
She attained success in Europe as a singer, and had several hit singles throughout the world. Her cover of the Shirley Ellis hit “The Clapping Song”, reached the U.S. Top 40 in 1983. The single was taken from Pia’s second album Let’s Dance Tonight released on the Curb records label.
