I'm an eighteen year old trapped in a sixty-five year old body. I most love the music of my early days. I was raised on Frank Sinatra, Connie Francis, Elvis Presley, and Nat King Cole and seasoned with a heavy dose of Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, and Conway Twitty. My favorite groups of the 50's are The Platters, the Everly Brothers, and The McGuire Sisters. Weird, huh? Well, my musical tastes are painted with a broad brush. I love ragtime, standards, and the rock of the 60's and 70s. My interest in new music has steadily tailed off since the 80s. My more recent favs include Jackie Evancho, Martina McBride, Garth Brooks, and Reba McEntire.
In the last two years I found Ronan Parke through BGT. He was a very talented twelve year old. He turned me on to Adele. Greyson Chance, another talented twelve year old from Oklahoma turned me on to Lady Gaga with his cover of Paparazzi.
