Legendary Bobby Helms

Legendary Bobby Helms

Legendary Bobby Helms

I’m doing Legendary Bobby Helms, because of that one song, Jingle Bell Rock“. I played over and over, because in My parents house I would hear the same people over and over again. I was into Rock’n’Roll, but Mom was into crooners, so there was a fight on how loud we can get our record player on. Mom always win, because she had a stereo, and I only had just a record player. As I’m upstairs and closing the door, so not to disturb her hearing “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby, I placed my ear to the speaker just to hear this song. 

Robert Lee Helms (August 15, 1933 June 19, 1997) was an American country music singer best known for his 1957 Christmas hit Jingle Bell Rock. His other hits include Fraulein and My Special Angel.
