黑珍珠過去有著耐人尋味的生活; 她得過選美冠軍，當過模特兒，做過舞蹈指導，主舞者，電視節目主持人, 以及花花公子兔女郎。沒錯，在1973年她贏得”榮譽武士小姐”皇冠的殊榮, 不久後, 成為舊金山花花公子兔女郎。在那裏開始了她專業的演唱的生涯, 被視為”歌手兔女郎”
在路易斯安那州出生的黑珍珠，原名卡洛琳‧倫敦，但她更為人熟知的名字是：亞洲的「黑珍珠」)，來自舊金山, 現居於台北，現任職於台北ORTV(救世傳播協會), 一個宣教及英語教學的組織，擔任演員及歌曲寫作及製作, 福音歌手以及表演藝術總監。1992年黑珍珠將她的生 命完全然地奉獻給主，她全心期待能為 主所用，成為世上被傷害靈魂的需要。
The LORD has stationed this enthusiastic woman of GOD in Asia where He has sent her out into the field as a Missionary, Evangelist, Prayer Warrior, and Worshiper in Song, and Dance.

現在，亞洲已儼然成為黑珍珠的第二個家，而亞洲人也成了她的家人。她甚至取了一個中文名字「黑珍珠」(Black Pearl)，因為即使在亞洲，黑珍珠也是非常稀有的物品。所以這中文名字和這位迷人又多才多藝的歌手和藝人是名符其實的。她是不是最優秀的歌手和藝人 呢？答案是: 是的。然而她是否僅止於是一位歌手和藝人呢？當然不是的！她更是一位福音劇作家、導演、女演員、作家、詩人、及舞者……她對台灣的青少年來說，是一位富有啟發性的演說家，毫無疑問，她是一顆真正的「黑珍珠」。
