About the Book:
As new in dust jacket.
The Moonglows were considered, by many in the know, to be the best of the doo wop-era singers. An unlikely incident allowed Bill Morris and Prentiss Barnes to meet, and through a series of rare and providential events that followed, the retired singer was rescued from the depths of despair.
Prentiss was the original bass singer of The Moonglows and was disabled from a train car collision years before. He was now living in Jackson, Mississippi, Bill’s hometown. Prentiss and Bill connected and became very close friends. From that historic encounter, Bill facilitated a reunion of Bill Pinkney of The Original Drifters and Prentiss. This led to Bill producing The Original Drifters first two gospel CDs.
Over the next few years, he found himself singing with The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Drifters and Moonglows at various events. The last occasion was with the legendary Harvey Fuqua and The Moonglows’ in their final performance at the Doo Wop Hall of Fame milestone moment held in Boston Symphony Hall.
The real strength of this book lies in the deep chemistry that existed between Bill and each of these singers–the kind of friendship that changes the world. When people of different backgrounds and races come together with the love given from above, miracles begin to happen.
