…from Ozzie and Harriet to Elvis,

…Bob Hope to the Beach Boys.
( Synopsis )
The year is 1940.
I am about to sing my first solo in front of an audience.
I am 4 years old.
My Father is a fundamentalist Minister with a large congregation on the Northwest side of Chicago.
In a morning worship service, he stands me up on a stool and I sing my solo for the adoring congregation which erupts with applause and cheers when I finish my rendition of “God Bless America”.
And with that, I am hooked.
I want to be a singer.
Not a fighter pilot. Not a fireman.
Not even shortstop for my beloved Chicago Cubs.
And I never look back.
This book is about how my dream came true.
