"Porgy's" son's life on the operatic and theatrical stages

My Role Models and Mentors

 

One of my finest moments, performing in concert at the age of ten  
with the great Paul Robeson at a ceremony commemorating his 50th birthday
at Boston's Otisfield Hall.
 


This is Gerald A. Brown, affectionately known as Gerry.
Gerry has been my coach and accompanist for almost 30 years

 


Roland Hayes (1887-1977)
Internationally acclaimed lyric tenor considered to be the
first African American singer to enjoy international success.
Mr. Hayes privately appraised my ten year old voice after summoning 
my mother and me to his home--what an honor!

 


Edward Boatner, my first voice teacher

 


 Mary Ludington, my second voice teacher
