Remembering Perry Como on his birthday. His family story is incredible!
They immigrated from Abruzzo, Italy. His father had no money. He bought Perry a second-hand organ for $3 and let him attend music lessons even though he could barely afford them.
He later went on to sell millions of records, host a television show, win 5 Emmys, and more! His work was enjoyed around the globe and he had a very long and honorable career.
His family had NOTHING but gave him EVERYTHING. His father wasn’t able to hand him fame or fortune, but he was able to provide opportunity and values to give him a beautiful life.
