Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong!

August 4th, 2011

Louis Armstrong

One of my all-time favourite singers’ birthday is today, and I’ve been listening to his music all day. Happy Birthday, Louis Armstrong! I owe thanks to Armstrong (also known as Ol’ Satchmo) and his counterparts, including Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington, for getting me through the many all-nighters I pulled doing projects while I was in school. It’s impossible not to be in a good mood when you hear his voice.

Have a great day, everyone – and keep smiling!
