Event Description

March 24, 2016 Updated Mar 24, 2016 at 10:25 AM EDT

Comedian and singer LuLu Roman will entertain during a special program April 2 from 6-8 p.m. at Lifebridge Church, 12719 Corbin Road, Fort Wayne.
LuLu is best known as the most requested female cast member on the long running hit television Show "Hee Haw." The show ran from 1969-1993, and is now in reruns on the RFD-TV network. LuLu is also known for her accomplished and celebrated songwriting and singing all over the world.
LuLu's sense of humor later evolved into a highly successful career as an actress and comedienne with a lead role on "Hee Haw." However, success and wealth proved poisonous to the young actress. LuLu's search for acceptance and happiness eventually lead her to a drug addiction, which sent her down a spiral that nearly destroyed her life and career in 1971.

In 1973, a chance meeting with an old friend lead her to discover a new found faith in the Lord, and changed her life forever. It was in this revelation that she discovered she had a hidden talent in her voice. LuLu then began singing Gospel music, and eventually introduced it to "Hee Haw."

In addition to "Hee Haw," LuLu has also been a guest star on such television programs as "The Love Boat" and "Touched By An Angel." She is also an accomplished author with her autobiography and her cookbook "Kitchen Komforts."
Although she has been performing for over 40years, she has no plans to rest or retire. LuLu continues to travel sharing her testimony, her humor, and her music.

The event on April 2 is a fundraiser for the book, “The Prostitute’s Daughter.” It tells the life story of Jodie Ballenger, the daughter of a prostitute and a convicted thief.
Ballenger has written her manuscript and has launched a fundraising campaign to raise the money necessary to go any further with the project. Ballenger hopes her book will help people of all ages who deal with addiction, friends and loved ones of those dealing with addiction, and those who believe they can’t change their lives because of the circumstances they may be trapped in.

Tickets will be sold at the event and cost $10 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under. A live auction will follow.
