the other day another fp girl told me about the LA Ladies Choir, her current obsession. i had never heard of them before but i was immediately intrigued. they are a group of 30 women with careers ranging from music, fashion, art, literature and theater, and they sing covers of old folk songs and wear beautiful vintage dresses. how can you not love that? founding member becky stark (front woman of groups kavender diamond and the trio the living sisters) says the one rule of the choir is to sing joyfully, and she doesn’t care if you sing off-key. the ladies perform at venues around L.A., sometimes joined by flea of the red hot chili peppers, whose wife, model frankie raydar, is a member of the group (and her sister missy modeled in our march catalog!).
check out this video of them performing john lennon’s “happy xmas (war is over)” at space 15 twenty:
