Overview: Michael Lizzmore left his family and friends in Jacksonville, Florida at the tender age of 17 to pursue his lifelong dream as a recording artist/entertainer.
Destination: The bright lights of New York City. So, with a one-way ticket he landed at Kennedy Airport and hit the ground running, straight to 125th street in Harlem. As he stood there staring at the glittering marquee of the Apollo Theater, with the magic words, "Jackie Wilson - Mr. Excitement" a light went off in his head. He recalled how a couple of years earlier Jackie was performing at the Coliseum in Jacksonville, Fl when he stopped his show to dedicate a special song specifically to him. The song's title was No Pity in the Naked City (New York City).
He never forgot those haunting words of wisdom. Other words of wisdom came from another soul brother. As he was entering the airport in Jacksonville on his way to the Big Apple, he ran into Joe Tex. They slapped hands and he told Joe he was headed to N.Y.C. to pursue his dreams.
