Happy Valentine's Day!
The album "The Art of Leon Williams" is a souvenir collection of highlights from Leon’s tour and is a showcase of vocal mastery, including our Inspirational Song of the Week "Unforgettable". These performances are wonderful reminders of why these songs are still performed and adored today even in some cases after 50 years or more.
"Unforgettable" was probably composer and lyricist Irving Gordon's best known song and was was made famous by Nat King Cole. Many years later, Irving Gordon won a Grammy for Song of the Year when Natalie Cole re-recorded her father Nat King Cole's hit of "Unforgettable."
