The life of Harry Belafonte

He was working as a janitor in New York, when he was first introduced to theater. Jamaican American pop star, history-making TV host, and civil rights advocate, this is the life of the "King of Calypso," Harry Belafonte.

    I love his rendering of the Jamaican fairwell song which lovingly compells the audience to sing along

    If you have a microphone, for whatever reason, use it to do good. Even if for only one line of your dialogue or your song. Like other African American hero’s, I had no idea the breath of Harry Belafontes work. I did know who he was, I was raised on his calypso Christmas album which is still my celebration of that holiday. Thank you for this tribute. And inspiration
