Note: Seeing as the only sources of Louisa in pictures during the Captain & Tennille era are 70's video transfers and album/DVD covers, unavoidable video artifacts and printing/scanning issues are introduced so any such picture is of poor quality and/or has 'Moiré' patterns, unfortunately.
Underlines mark notes found in more prominent and/or solo vocal parts.
*= Notes sang on the Captain & Tennille Show from 1976-1977 or the Captain & Tennille Christmas Show for Christmas songs.

The Mezzo-Soprano voiced singing sister of Toni Tennille, Louisa Tennille sang the background 'Alto' parts on 'Captain & Tennille' recordings, and so toured with the duo and appeared on the 'Captain & Tennille Show', from 1976-1977, singing the same parts. Described as having a restrained vocal style with a youthful timbre, Louisa provided a welcome extra vocal texture in Captain & Tennille songs, contrasting with sister Toni's brasher tone and sister Melissa's bell-like soprano. Her vocal abilities and range are even more commendable considering she had no formal vocal training, and couldn't read music.
