Last year the movie Monster told the brutal, horrific story of the real life hooker Aileen Wuornos, who was executed by the state of Florida for killing 7 of her clients. One of the artists who spoke out against her execution was the avant-garde singer Diamanda Galas. Galas dedicated several of her songs to Aileen Wuornos, including a cover of Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." Trey Kay found out that one reason Galas felt so strongly about Wuornos' case is that she herself had spent time walking the streets.
