Growing up on American R&B music, William H. Morris, known to friends as Bill, grew to love the rich harmonies and the talented performers of a whimsical era in music. Never shy to introduce himself, Bill would wonder backstage during intermission and offer praise and admiration to the musicians. Time after time, that sparked a friendship that would last a lifetime. Those friendships inspired Bill’s inspirational memoir.
“While I was in Jackson, Mississippi, listening to the music of the ‘50s and ‘60s and throwing dances to pay my way through college, Prentiss Barnes was performing on the stages of New York City and all across the country. “We were two men from different worlds who were being prepared for a rare breed of friendship.” William H. Morris, author of This Magic Moment.
