Fats Domino is on the Bayou

Fats Domino
“Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”

Being from Louisiana has given me an acute sensitivity to anything related to it. Today is Mardi Gras. I’ve decided to feature a song sung by a New Orleans native — fats Domino.

If you remember, Fats stayed home during Hurricane Katrina because of his wife’s poor health. They live in the lower 9th ward of New orleans — one of the worst areas struck by the HUrricane. They lost everything.

It is reported that over 700,000 revelers attended Mardi Gras this year. Thanks for supporting New Orleans and Louisiana.
