1979 Vicki Lawrence – Newborn Woman

Victoria Ann “Vicki” Lawrence (born March 26, 1949), sometimes credited as Vicki Lawrence Schultz, is an American actress, comedian, and singer known for the many characters she originated on CBS’s The Carol Burnett Show, where she appeared from 1967 to 1978, for the entire series run. One such character, “The Family” matriarch Thelma Harper/Mama, later was the central character of the television situation comedy series Mama’s Family on NBC and, later, in first-run syndication.

She released a disco album entitled Newborn Woman late in 1979. The album produced the minor disco hit “Don’t Stop the Music”.
