Excerpt From Website
AT THE AGE OF 14, I FORMED A SINGING GROUP CALLED FOUR STORIES HIGH. WE WERE A TRIBUTE TO THE MIRACLES GROUP. AS I WAS GETTING OLDER, PEOPLE WERE SAYING THAT I LOOKED LIKE A YOUNG SMOKEY AND SOUNDED LIKE HIM TO. I THOUGHT THAT WAS SO GREAT TO BE TOLD. IN 1984 OUR GROUP PARTED WAYS. I KEPT SINGING SOLO ALL OVER AS ALPHONSE SINGS SMOKEY. I MET SMOKEY IN CHICAGO IN 2007 AT A SHOW OF HIS. TOOK A PHOTO TOGETHER AND GAVE HIM MY CARD. IN 2008 I GOT AN EMAIL, IT WAS THE MIRACLES SAYING THEY NEED A NEW LEAD SINGER. YOU KNOW THIS WAS MY “MIRACLE“, “THANK YOU LORD” I SAID, GOD HAD PREPARED ME ALL THESE YEARS FOR THIS TASK. I CALL MYSELF THE LOST “MIRACLE” BECAUSE IN THAT SHORT TIME I FILLED IN WITH THE GROUP I DIDN’T GET A LARGE FAN BASE. MY DREAM NOW IS TO SING TOGETHER ON STAGE WITH SMOKEY HIMSELF. I REALLY BELIEVE IN “MIRACLES”, FOR DREAMS DO COME TRUE.
