It is hard to imagine life without music. We hear it constantly on the radio, TV, through our computers and iPods. However, as each song tells a story, there is often an even more amazing story behind the life of the musician. This unique audio collection from the Amazing People Club explores the life stories of five amazing musicians and reveals their challenges and what inspired them to create the music they did.

Elvis Presley’s life has been documented in books and films; however, it comes alive in a very different way through this audio. Louis Armstrong was one of the world’s most amazing voices, and his life was truly remarkable. Follow him on his journey from poverty-stricken circumstances in New Orleans to becoming one of the world’s most celebrated musicians. The equally amazing career of George Gershwin is also celebrated in this unique collection.

Each story comes alive through BioViews. A BioView is a short biographical story, similar to an interview. These unique stories provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions to our world and can help you achieve your ambitions in your journey through life.

About the Narrator

Nicolas Bearde is a jazz singer of remarkable depth, range and technique who has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences worldwide for his ‘buttery baritone’ and deeply imaginative interpretations. In the 1980s he became part of Jukebox, a radio play starring Danny Glover. At Glover’s recommendation, Bearde began studying with renowned acting teacher Jean Shelton, and a year later he was cast in the Athol Fugard play “Master Harold”…and the Boys. His portrayal was so convincing that his South African cast mate asked what part of Africa he was from. Bearde continued acting, first in theater, then expanding into film and television.
