I happened 2 B watching a commercial the other night, a Patriotic Commercial of this blind man singing about BN N America and the Red, White & Blue. His voiced sounded so familiar and he looked so familiar at the end of the commercial when he stood up and took off his hat...I found out he's the Guy who used 2 sing N front of the Flea Market here N Detroit and a KMart store also here N Detroit..I was so amazed, I mentioned it 2 a few people, and they already knew. My son was surprised I didn't recognize his voice, but that's what sounded so familiar.
The Flea Market was located on 8 Mile Rd & Dequindre. All I can say is ther R still a lot of talent here and I felt good about CN the Blind Guy on a commercial (no, I never knew his name, just dropped a few coins N his cup when I shopped)...Detroit is STILL and always WILL B "MOTOWN", we're still sending new talelnt out N the world, and it don't stop>>>>>>>

Any chance it's a guy named Robert Bradley? His bio mentions he used to sing (with his cup) at Eastern Market. Check out www.bellybone.com
He has quite a story

Is that the one who was on the "Concert of Colors" at Chene Park this week? It will be shown on Comcast (06-Local Channel) periodically.

Yep, that was him SIs, he probably should've been discovered years ago. well...maybe the saying is right, the one that says "It's Never 2 Late" and the one that says "It aint over 'til it's over" and one more that says "It aint over until the fat Lady sings" (so...when R they gonna let me sing????) LOL!!!
