Hello Ms. Cara, I enjoy hearing that song you always sing, What a Feeling from the movie Flashdance. So in reality Im a real fan and a admirer of you. I can't seem hearing over n over that song of yours. But it's a shame Ive never seen you up close and in person in a concert.

Lovely little comment from Tracy, dating back to May 2006, about how she met Irene and gave her a hug!
Personally, I have never seen 'Fame' but I am aware of how Irene looks, or looked then, should I say, and I agree with 5ft3. She's probably smaller now though, especially as dedicated dancers have to restrict their diets in order to stay super-slim.
I noticed that Tracy mentioned that Irene is fuller-figured now, but 120lbs is still a healthy weight for that height range.

I am a fan of hers. In 2006, I met and hugged her. She is tiny shorter than me and I am 5'5. She still looks fine. If I had to estimate I would say 120 pounds now.
