Expertise

I will do my very best to answer any and all questions about Barry Manilow and his phenomenal career in a timely, informative and professional-like manner.

Experience in the area

I have been a Barry Manilow fan ever since "Mandy", and I have an extensive collection of his recordings, videos and DVDs from his first album to the present date. I have also had the pleasure of meeting Barry, and I respect and admire him tremendously.

Organizations

I have been a member of the Barry Manilow International Fan Club for 38 years, and I have been a lifetime member since 1991.

Education/Credentials

I am a graduate of Grand Blanc High School, and I have an Associate's Degree in the Medical Secretarial field from Baker College of Flint, Michigan.

What do you like about this subject?

Barry Manilow is a true musician, not just a singer or a songwriter. As Rolling Stone magazine says, Barry Manilow is "The Showman Of Our Generation". I also love the fact that Barry's music brings joy, hope and inspiration to people all over the world.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to learn more about other people who appreciate Barry's music, and how his music has meaningfully affected their lives.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Barry started out on the accordion, then switched to the piano at the age of 13. He has also described his career as a singer and concert entertainer as a "beautiful accident", and that this career chose him. He likes oddball musical instruments such as the kazoo, musical saw, Jew's Harp, etc.
