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

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