Host Deardra Shuler talks to Charles Bobbit, James Brown friend and manager. Bobbit will talk about his rags to riches story with Deardra. Bobbit also managed Michael Jackson and was the personal advisor to President Omar Bongo of Gabon. Born in 1930, in the back woods of North Carolina, Charles was whisked to Brooklyn, NY by his eldest sister after the loss of his mother to cancer. During his young adult years, he worked as a porter. He later worked for the New York City Transit Authority, laying rails at night. Later he deemed the entertainment industry was an escape from menial labor, although he could neither sing nor dance.
Mr. Bobbit’s first introduction to the realization of his dream was when he first saw Mr. James Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” perform at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY. He was awestruck and proclaimed to his wife that he would one day work as Brown’s Personal Manager. Although thwarted originally, by 1965, he won a job as James Brown's valet and later became Brown's friend and manager up to the day Brown died. The book, "Making it Happen," tells Brown and Bobbitt's story. It was Mr Bobbit who gave James Brown the title, “Godfather of Soul.” Bobbit was instrumental in the arrangement of “Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.” and the musical scores for the movie, “Black Caesar,” starring Fred Williamson. Bobbit met President Omar Bongo of Gabon and worked with Bongo's son cutting a few albums. The family hired Bobbit as their advisor taking Bobbit to heights that he couldn’t even imagine. He later worked with Michael Jackson becoming his friend and confidante.
With a degree from St. Mary College, California in English and a minor in Communications, Ms. Lorena Bathey, used her creative abilities and marketing skills to write and promote her memoir, Happy Beginnings: How I Became My Own Fairy Godmother.
Creating a brand from this book, she established a conference for women called, The Love Fest. She planned and promoted this event for two years. Her marketing for this brand led a Senior Executive Producer from the Oprah Show to seek her out. Changing her writing format to writing novels and starting her publishing company, Lorena B Books, Ms. Bathey integrated the work she'd done with Happy Beginnings by creating strong female characters throughout her writing.
Ms. Bathey has spoken for conferences, women's groups, had her own radio show, and promoted self-publishing throughout the ensuing years. She is currently working on her new novel and has three historical fiction books in the writing queue. You can find her at www.LorenaBBooks.com

Tony Wilson was named "The Young James Brown" and personally Endorsed by The Godfather of Soul himself, also by Bassist Bootsy Collins, Danny Ray The Capeman, Mrs. Tomirae Brown and Mr. Charles Bobbit ; it doesn't get any better than that! Tony is backed by the Original Musicians that toured with James Brown and has been electrifying audiences with his own personal style for many years around the world including The Netherlands, Japan, Sweden, Ireland, Germany, London, the UK, Switzerland, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the West Indies, Paris France, Belgium and the United States.Tony has performed in some of the best Festivals and Venues in the world - The North Sea Jazz Festival Amsterdam/Rotterdam, The Cactus Festival Belgium, The Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, The O2 Wireless Hyde Park London and countless other Events and Venues Worldwide.
Mr. James Brown hand picked Tony Wilson to portray him in two IMDB shortfilm movies which include Funk Blast 1999 produced by Paul Allen from Microsoft and BMW Films Beat the Devil 2004 directed by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott
Tony Wilson is the only Entertainer/Musician that The Godfather of Soul James Brown endorsed and approved of in writing : " To Tony Wilson # 2, Keep on being me" - James Brown. JB called Tony personally to back him up at The Soul of America Festival in his hometown for what would turn out to be The Godfather's final concert in Augusta Geogia.
Fact: Did you know that James Brown single handedly wrote more songs than his mentors Mozart, Beethoven, Bach, Strauss. The great Irving Berlin wrote 1.001 tunes and James Brown wrote 5,500 songs. What is the point? The point is that James Brown never wrote a song that he couldn't sing to his mother and he truly was a role model in the music industry and for all that loved him.
Tony Wilson, the Young James Brown is keeping the The Godfather of Soul's visual legacy alive and on the one!
