Shut Up and Sing!

Amy Albani


Availability: In stock

Shut Up and Sing!: The Story of a Tenor received a 5-Star Highly Recommended rating from Readers Favorite. The audiobook includes about twenty singing excerpts. Paul Veglia is an extremely talented singer with a lovable, somewhat zany personality. His life story is a strange mixture of successes and failures. As a young man, he was offered a contract with the Metropolitan Opera but was too insecure to accept it. He married the love of his life, Monika, daughter of actor Paul Henreid, but it ended in an unhappy divorce. His beautiful singing led him to success in Las Vegas and with the Met touring company. He interacted with many celebrities during his life—Leonard Bernstein, Frank Sinatra, Sophia Loren, Dean Martin, Liberace, Sly Stallone, and others. Though now in his eighties, Paul still entertains people with his singing and with his many fascinating stories.
