I have been Singing/entertaining professionally, locally,nationally and internationallyy since 1968, so of course I love it!, my first professional gig openning up for Ike and Tina Turner at The Egyptian Theatre Milwaukee Wi 1968 what I remember most was using the same dressing room as the Iketts and James Brown and Al Green 1971 in The Milwaukee Auduitorium and working with Bob Marley and Toots and The Maytels in Jamaica in 1969 having conversations with them about the Rasja faith smoking and drinking 151 proof rum was definitely a Highlight!! Then later performing and touring with Motown's legendary group Jr. Walker's All-star Band as lead their vocalist. Learning and performing with the pioneers of Rock,R&B,Reggae and Soul has been my joy.
