Louis Armstrong Prezi
Transcript of Louis Armstrong Prezi
making a lot of money, he
remained a humble man and
donated most of what he
earned. He supported Martin
privately, preferring to help inconspicuously. He donated much of his money to a variety of charities and even to where his career began, the Waif's Home. Luther King Jr. but because he didn't want publicity to interfere with his musical career, he did everything
Louis Armstrong was the first
person inducted into the Down
Beat Jazz Hall of Fame. He won the award "Best Male Vocal Performance"
for his song, "Hello, Dolly!" He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame as an early influence. There was a statue erected of him in Armstrong
Park, also named after him. A part of the ASCAP Jazz Wall of Fame. -Another- statue of him in Algiers Ferry
Landing in New Orleans. "Hello, Dolly!" album was #1 on the charts
for 6 weeks straight. Mack the Knife was #1 in Australia for four weeks. And maaaaaaaany more, but due to how much time I have, , I am unable to name them all. Since Louis is said to have 'invented' jazz, he's given credit for that entire style of music thanks to his mercurial and expressive way of playing. Articulation was key, and to this day hard to match how great he was. http://www.myhero.com/go/hero.asp?hero=L_Armstrong_dn_hs_US_2010 http://www.satchmo.com/louisarmstrong/props4pops.html http://history1900s.about.com/od/people/a/Louis-Armstrong.htm http://www.8notes.com/f/29_27232.asp http://www.beginband.com/trumpet.shtml http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Trumpet_1.jpg
