"THE FIRST SONG I EVER SANG WAS "HAND IN HAND WITH JESUS"...IT WAS AT ONE OF THOSE SINGING SCHOOLS THAT WE HAD AT OUR PUBLIC SCHOOL IN THE SUMMER....ROBERT S. ARNOLD TAUGHT THE SCHOOL, AND AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL, HE ASKED ME TO STAND IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL AND LEAD EVERYONE IN SINGING A SONG....THAT IS THE SONG I CHOSE....FROM THAT DAY FORWARD, I KNEW I WANTED TO BE IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS OF SINGING SONGS.

LATER ON, I SANG WITH THE SOUTHERNAIRS QUARTET IN PARIS, TEXAS....EACH SUMMER, WE HAD A SINGING SCHOOL....WE BROUGHT IN MR, AND MRS. HORACE KENNEDY AND THEIR DAUGHTER ELLEN, TO TEACH OUR SINGING SCHOOL.....I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS WITH ELLEN FOR OVER 54 YEARS.....SHE HAS BECOME ONE OF THE ELITE TEACHERS AND KEYBOARD SPECIALISTS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY.

I ENCOURAGE ALL INTERESTED PEOPLE TO CHECK OUT THE TEXAS SOUTHERN GOSPEL SCHOOL OF MUSIC AT NAVARRO COLLEGE IN CORSICANA, TEXAS, BEGINNING JULY 10TH THROUGH JULY 22nd, 2017....ONE CAN LEARN SO MUCH IN THESE SINGING SCHOOLS, AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ATTEND....."
