This is the remarkable true story of a white Mississippi businessman with a lifelong passion for R&B/Doo-Wop music, who in a "Magic Moment" encounter with one of his favorite groups, discovers his talent for singing this style of music. He also discovered that his passion for music held a higher purpose, one that led to a three-decade, deep friendship with Prentiss Barnes and Harvey Fuqua of The Moonglows, Bill Pinkney of The Original Drifters and Rufus McKay of the Red Tops and the Ink Spots that blessed and enriched all of their lives. Bill writes lovingly about his divinely inspired experiences that included producing two Gospel CDs for The Original Drifters and performing onstage at Boston Symphony Hall with The Moonglows at the Doo Wop Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, all while building a highly-successful insurance firm. The real strength of this book lies in the deep chemistry that existed between Bill and each of these singers. When people of different backgrounds and races come together with the love given from above, miraculous things are possible. The message of this book is one people especially need to hear today. The book also contains 135 behind-the-scenes color photos of some of R&B and Rock and Roll's most iconic performers.
Includes many photos of legendary performers and events.
