W. C. Handy
This is my vision of st.louis Blues using doodle buddie
William Christopher Handy was born in 1875 and grew up in a log cabin with his mother and father in Alabama. His dad was a minister and were very poor. William was a good student and enjoyed school. William played in a band and sang in a quartet. William was hopeful and was working very many jobs. He eventually found himself homeless and hungry. One day, He was walking by a salon and heard a man singing to music from a guitar, he asked if he could show the singer what he can do. The crowd loved his music and and someone took up for him and gave him a lot of money to buy new clothes.
At one of W.C Handy’s concert he saw his father and he heard his father say “ that’s my son”. Handy knew that his father had forgiven him. Handy was 40 and is growing a family. He had to write a song and publish it. So Handy packed a bag without telling his wife Elizabeth. He went to rent a room with a piano and started to write. He was inspired by the singing, laughing, and shouting outside his door. The sounds reminded him of his earlier life. And he made a song called “St. Louis blues”. He is known a the king of the blues because of his music. He is the only one to take the time and write it all down. Some people made a movie about W.C Handy’s life he
was too ill to attend the movie theater so they brought the movie to him. W.C Handy died in 1958.
