Celebrity Rock: "Laura Ingalls" sings & dances (American Bandstand, 1978)

Of course, I'm referring to Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura on Little House on the Prairie. Imagine the surprise finding this next video.

Melissa appeared on American Bandstand to perform a cover of "If My Friends Could See Me Now", which disco singer Linda Clifford had recorded earlier in 1978. Melissa's version never made it onto vinyl, nor did it get any kind of radio airplay at all.

This also appears on my other blog, Saturday Morning Archives.
