Tom Jones, the singer, is on my mind today! Do you like him? Are you a fan?
Back in the late sixties, when I was building my name as artistic director of my own dance company, Welsh singer Tom Jones was in the news making hit records, performing in major venues, getting to be a famous name in the music world.
Since then, he’s sung in nearly every form of popular music -- pop, rock, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul and gospel. He’s sold over 100 million records. He’s been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and received numerous awards.
In this video, Tom Jones talks about the importance of the Olympics and reminisces. He’s speaking for me, today, about the importance of being busy, staying active, never, never retiring.
