Lovelace Watkins – The Magic Voice

Lovelace WatkinsI have never forgotten seeing Lovelace Watkins at Batley Variety Club. The power of his voice and his personality simply stunned me. We were sitting about 10 feet from the front and to the right hand side but his voice was so powerful he could sing without a mic and be heard at the back.

I found this on You Tube but he does not come over with the same Oomph as in a live performance.

When I decided to write this I looked online (as you do) and found that The Times  called him “the best entertainer on earth”. Sadly he passed away in 1995 age just 57 – now the best entertainer in Heaven?
