A riveting story of determination from a man who fulfilled his dream of becoming an international entertainer in spite of battles with negative elements.
“Excellently written & revealing. A re-awakening about how we got here from there and how a black man broke through the obstacles to be the man he wants to be and is - there’s an unspoken pride within being humble. You have been blessed and you grasp and accept it with grace & modesty - well done Shelley.”
~ Andy Boller
“Fantastic manuscript, riveting and easy to follow. It’s historical and multigenerational. With 5-star elements from the Mississippi Delta to the brights of Las Vegas; from Main Street to Wall Street. You took time to address some issues of today. Kudos and congratulations. ”
~ Michael ‘Bart’ Matthews, Chicago, IL
“RIVETING! It was like reviewing history. You will not put this one down! Shelley has such insight into the world of music of the 60’s, 70's 80's and now. This is more than an autobiography; it is the journey of a time of a pepole.
~ Donald Whitehead - Co-Founder of Earth, Wind & Fire
“I am pleased to praise and recommend this memoir from Shelley. His story is an autobiographical, yet historical journey of a Black American child born under very poor, unstable circumstances and his ability to survive and ultimately thrive in the world of Entertainment.”’
~ Paula Minor - BLM Activist.
