Women in Music
Leslie Hall, 26
Her band: Leslie and the Lys
Influences: Elvira, Ginger Spice, Tracy Turnblat of "Hairspray"
All that she wants: Leslie Hall rose to internet fame with her bedazzled sweaters and humorous songs. The You Tube hits have gotten her on VH1 and "Attack of the Show" and let her work with her idol, Elvira. Now she wants her mobile sweater museum to make a stop closer to home. "I want to perform at the Iowa State Fair, the Ames Bandshell and the Iowa Hall of Fame. My sights are set high," Hall said. "My show has costume changes, me being raised up, a rotating stage and a fog machine. It's all the glamour of Las Vegas, but in Ames."
"Well, you say a plump girl can't tap a beat
Well, listen up closely as I take your seat
Cause the 'L' is for lonely
and the 'Y' is for you
The 'S' is for suckers who don't join the crew."
- "Beware the Beats"
