Bill Withers

One of my favourite artists is Bill Withers

Few of his songs that I particularly enjoy ...
- Use me
- Lean on me
- Lovely day
- Just the two of us
- Aint no sunshine when she's gone

Jersey Boys

It comes as no surprise that the biggest hit on Broadway this season is ...
Jersey Boys … “ The story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons”.

The name of Frankie Vallie, one of the biggest musical acts of the 60’s … is back with a huge bang … and his hits are again into circulation ...
- Sherry
- Big girls don’t cry
- Walk like a man

And his biggest hit was his solo …
Cant take my eyes off you ... Which is my favourite too!
