Relive the Romance of the Sixties
MURFREESBORO, NC – Travel back in time to the romance of the 60s with music from the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Brian Hyland, and Barbra Streisand. Dr. Chris White, President of Chowan University, released his new CD entitled Yesterday: Love Songs of the 1960s. This musical collection is titled after a popular Beatles’ song that is not only featured on the CD, but also revives old memories, making it feel as if the 60s were only as far away as yesterday.
The decade of the 1960s was significant to Dr. White and wife, Linda Fleming, of Hartwell, GA. They both graduated from high school and college during this decade. He graduated from seminary while she taught school and they married in 1965. They lived in Louisville, KY and Atlanta, GA, but it was the pop music of these years that defined their lives.
Artists like Frank Sinatra, Frankie Valli, and Johnny Cash were popular during this time. Theme songs from popular movies became pop classics like “The Fiddler on the Roof,” Romeo and Juliet,” Dr. Zhivago,” and “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.” Dr. White shares these classic 60s memories through his latest CD full of unique piano interpretations.
The entire CD fashions a walk down memory lane, from photography of his wedding day to his classic 1957 Ford featured on the back cover. This marks number fourteen in Dr. White’s growing collection. Yesterday: Love Songs of the 1960s was recorded on the Steinway Grand Piano in the sanctuary of the Murfreesboro Baptist Church. Dr. White’s CDs add to the university’s status as a quality institution based on Christian values, and all proceeds are given to the Chowan Christian Service Association for ministerial student scholarships and student mission trips.
