Ready for Quiz #26?

I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it!

.

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

Artist of the Week #26
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..American singer, born on December 1, 1945, in Hawaii.

The latter 2 facts in that statement surprised me when making this quiz.

First, because given her work on Broadway (both in real life and in her memorable Rochelle Rochelle appearance on Seinfeld), I incorrectly assumed she was a New Yorker.

Second…

.

400 points………………..even if we are slightly separated From a Distance in age by a decade or two, learning that I’m birthday buddies with “The Divine Miss (Artist of the week)” was still a nice bonus!

300 points……………….Some say love, it is a river first-name photo puzzle clue:

  1. I suspected at 500 but only new at 400.

  2. Same as Neil.

    Enjoy a warm and family friendly summer, Geoff!

    Wow, I have just been flunking lately. Big ol’ zero for me again this week.

    • No worries, Harrison – I suppose some strive their whole lives for consistency, so consistency here can be viewed as a positive!

  4. 400. I had no idea at 500.

  5. 500 for me. Love her!! And since I just re-watched all the Seinfeld episodes, this was easy.

  6. It paid off in spades to have taped those Seinfeld episodes on VCR when I wasn’t home back in the 90’s as that first clue helped me secure 500 smackers…

  7. 400 today.

  8. Zack permalink

    300. That is surprising she’s from Hawaii.

  9. The Seinfeld nerd in me earns another 500!

  10. Never heard of her, sorry! Thanks for the quiz, though!

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    400. Who knew she was Hawaiian?!

  12. 300. Happy sunshine holidays ☀🌞🌻🕶⛱

  13. 400 each for me and Mika.

  14. I’m glad you kept going in that 500 clue because I didn’t get it til its second half. Still, nailed it!

  15. Absolutely none for me this week. I’m clearly too hip/not hip enough.
