I'm Sonny Turner, lead singer of The Platters, from The Platters, that's right, The Platters that made the hit records. Very proud to talk about how I was inspired, and what inspired me to be a performer, as most of the performers I know came along when they were children, or when they were youngsters, singing in different doo-wop groups, and being inspired to become performers and singers. And I had a mother that was a fabulous gospel singer, that inspired me to continue, how to continue, "Don't give up!" You know, don't give up, persevere. I mean, under stress or strain or disappointment, you don't give up. That's just a lesson in life you learn. Persevering, and that's exactly what I did, and brought me to where I am today. And a full, wonderful life of enjoyment as a performer that I aspired to be. I'm who I was born to be.
