Article gave the Godfather his due



I would like to take this opportunity to thank Steven Uhles for such a beautiful article on James Brown published in The Augusta Chronicle on May 5 ("Hardworking Brown sees much more to do").

Being a former entertainer myself on the Broadway circuit, then retiring here in Augusta from the Northeast, I was kind of surprised that people don't get the recognition that is due.

I, as many others in and outside of the United States, know that James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, is the true progenitor of the soul movement across the nation.

Thank you again for the article. Mr. Uhles wrote it right!
