Deidre Lang

I used to love watching Deidre Lang on the comedy show In Living Color.  She was one of my favorite Fly Girls.  She is a stunning beauty.  But although she’s a great dancer nd actress many don’t know she’s an amazing singer as well. Deidre Lang is known for her work on In Living Color (1990), Herman’s Head (1991) and Back in Step with the Fly Girls (2004).
