The Moonglows were considered, by many in the know, to be the best of the doo-wop era singers. That rare and unlikely incident led Bill to rescue Prentiss Barnes 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 Moonglow’s� 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.
