About this audiobook

This Magic Moment is a heartwarming true story about a white insurance executive’s three-decade friendship with four legendary African American singers and their remarkable journey together. Three were Rock and Roll Hall of Famers – Prentiss Barnes and Harvey Fugua of The Moonglows, Bill Pinkney of The Original Drifters. The fourth was Rufus McKay, a Mississippi treasure and lead singer of The Red Tops. The book is a celebration of the power of music, friendship and trusting God’s plan.

Anyone who fondly remembers the 1950’s and 60’s will love Morris’ vivid descriptions and nostalgic look back at life and culture during these simpler times. Music lovers, especially fans of Doo wop, early R&B, vocal group harmony and Rock and Roll, will appreciate the extensive music history and backstories woven throughout the book and be amazed how a fellow fan, a regular guy “not in the business,” had a front row seat at some of the industry’s biggest events, even performing onstage with some of his heroes. People of faith will be inspired and touched reading how God used Bill and the bonds that were formed among these five men to accomplish His purpose and bless all their lives. Bill knows he only had these amazing experiences because God’s hand was writing the story.

This Magic Moment reminds us that true friendship is possible among people of different backgrounds when we focus on the things we have in common; that music has a magical power to bring people together and instill shared, universal emotion; and that sometimes God works in mysterious ways!
