I feel like I’m coming home to my childhood, as I’m doing Donny Osmond Part Three. To be able to do his life story and listen to his albums, is a pleaser to me, and I feel Bless to do so.

Public Image

Donny Osmond Part Three

Osmond states that he has had a tremendous public-image struggle since Donny & Marie ended in 1979. Reviews from Allmusic noted that while Osmond remained a gifted singer a series of creative missteps in the late 1970s resulted in his virtually disappearing from the public eye throughout the 1980s. He was described in the 1980s as having an unhip image, and he said he was embarrassed that the Osmond name was not considered cool. A publicist recommended that Osmond purposefully get arrested

The Coasters Young Blood

The Coasters Young Blood

The Coasters Young Blood

Their my favorite R&B group, and even today, theirs group, nor band can hold a candle to them. So I’m happy to finally do The Coasters Young Blood, and I’m looking forward to you enjoying as much as I.

The Coasters are an American rhythm and blues/rock as well as roll singing group that had a string of hits in the late 1950s. Starting with Searchin and also Young Blood,their most unforgettable songs were written by the songwriting and producing team of Leiber and Stoller. Although the Coasters originated outside of mainstream doo-wop, their records were so often imitated that they came to be an important part of the doo-wop legacy through the 1960s.

Musical Films Of 1957

Here’s another year of films, and in Musical Films Of 1957, you can see the list is getting smaller and only “Loving You” was geared for younger audience, while the rest is for the adult’s. It’s only proves that the musicals are on the way out and Hollywood is out of touch with the teenagers at the time. The teenagers don’t want to hear grownups singers, they want Rock’N’Roll and Elvis Presley, and Hollywood is too blind to see that the times are changing, and Rock’N’Roll is here to stay.

Hollywood, made money from Elvis Presley, but in 1957, Fred Astaire, wasn’t. It’s a shame that Hollywood would try to update the actors and singers at that time, but time moves forward and not back...

Debby Boone Part Two

I’m excited to do Debby Boone Part Two, because I’ve been waiting for a long time to do it, for it was a long time for me to do.

Debby Boone On Stage Music Work

In musical theater, usually the challenge for me is that everything is too high. I am a true alto. There are not a lot of leading roles written for altos…I love musical theater and I love working in a company.There’s nothing quite like the energy of working with a full cast and an orchestra. (Citing Anna in The King & I as her favorite role:) That show…is so well constructed from beginning to end….There is something so incredibly beautiful in the arc of the character of Anna & how she evolved and what she learned. It’s such a beautiful story with such a beautiful message...
