Black History Month_2021-FatsDomino-PattiLaBelle
Antoine Dominique “Fats” Domino Jr. was an American pianist and singer-songwriter. One of the pioneers of rock and roll music, Domino sold more than 65 million records. Between 1955 and 1960, he had eleven Top 10 hits. His humility and shyness may be one reason his contribution to the genre has been overlooked, but his onstage personality drew audiences to him like a Pied Piper.
