Maine Woman Hilariously Sings As Cher While We’re In Isolation
Her name is Leah Finkelstein and she grew up in Southern Maine. Leah has been living in Los Angeles for many years now and is a musician and entertainer. She has an incredible voice and is wicked funny.
Your Facebook news feed has probably been loaded with people doing Quarantine Karaoke as we spend way more time at home doing our duty to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
Well the very talented Leah Finkelstein took to her own page today and posted the video we all need right now.
She's got a fabulous wig and leather jacket on as she absolutely nails an impression of Cher with a lyrical parody of If I Could Turn Back Time. Leah along with her friends Heather Stewart and Kevin Dietz, have rewritten the words to hysterically reflect the way our life of insolation and sanitation is for now.
As we all do our best to make it through this unprecedented time, good laughs are always welcome. Thank you, Leah. All your friends and family in Maine are wishing you the best out in LA. We all look forward to being to sit in your audience again as soon as it's safe again.
Here's more about Leah Finkelstein:
When Leah was a student at Cape Elizabeth High School, she used sing with friends at the old Wrong Brothers' Pub on open mic nights which led to playing like a million gigs all over Greater Portland. She went on to form a band and named it Dear Claudia in honor of her mom who sadly, passed away in 2005 after a battle with cancer.
After great success locally, Leah was contacted by a producer of the TV show Weeds about maybe using her music in an episode. It was then that she and her husband decided to take the plunge and move to LA.
When they got there, it didn't take long for Leah to get a gig performing at a bar in Burbank. This led to meeting musical kindred spirits, Karen Volpe and Heather Stewart. In the fall of 2013, these three talented ladies formed a music comedy trio called The Boobé Sisters parodying 60s girl groups. They got busy with gigs all over LA and had a residency at a lounge in Sherman Oaks called The Cork. All this led to appearing on America's Got Talent in 2016. The Boobé Sisters were one of 350 acts selected out of 50,000 to appear in front of Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel.
