Friend Ronnie on America’s Got Talent!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

My longtime friend Ronnie Lamarque, who is a young 72 years old, is called  Crescent City’s silver-haired singing car dealer and he glowed in the spotlight of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” contest on Tuesday (Aug. 8) but didn’t quite make it to the next plateau. In a telephone conversation Tuesday, Ronnie said that attempting to sing the sweeping Elvis Presley ballad “If I Can Dream” accompanied by a solo piano was a stylistic challenge, but in the end he felt he’d delivered.  He didn’t quite make the final round but three cheers for my friend for going so far in life and being such a great talent.  See him perform below.
