A story of remarkable achievement, shocking controversy and glowing faith.
Pat Boone is far more than a living rock ‘n’ roll legend, though that is where his story begins. Working with such great names as--Elvis, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry and others, Boone rocketed to the pinnacle of pop-music stardom in the 1950s, setting an unbroken record for hit singles and garnering international acclaim.
Today, with thirteen gold discs, two gold albums and one platinum album to his credit, Pat Boone has worn an amazing variety of hats: recording artist, actor, spokesperson, TV personality, radio host, author, sportsman, songwriter, religious leader and long-time husband to his high-school sweetheart.
Here is the story of the man behind the achievements. Pat Boone is a captivating look at the people, events and deep Christian convictions that have shaped a remarkable life and career, from the amateur competitions of the fifties to the furor over Boone’s heavy-metal album in 1997. The history of rock ‘n’ roll comes alive in these pages, lit by a faith that inspires through its determination to reach the world with a message worth hearing.About the Author:
