Overview
Can You Hear Me Now? summarizes the author's journey in life—a life that begins with the endearing whispers of childhood, evolves into the struggles and pains of adolescence and explodes with the musical development, excitement and ecstasy of early adulthood. You will travel with him as his life intertwines with famous musicians, mayors, historians, actors, entrepreneurs and even the family of the Late Martin Luther King Jr. As the journey into adulthood broadens, widens and yields to the twists and turns of maturity, the whispers, struggles and excitement yield to contentment and near the book's conclusion, develops into a strong statement of affirmation: You Can Hear Me Now!
Description
Can You Hear Me Now? is a book of stories and every story has a plot…each plot is a life lesson, and each life lesson is the key to survival, solidarity and self-direction. The reader will discover how to: • Work from the inside of self, not the outside of world. • Reach for his calling in life and not his career. • Recognize that struggling is the pathway to growth development and never devalue it! Answers to "burning" questions, painful decisions and heart-wrenching disappointments will be found. Using his musicianship, the author begins the book by whispering Can You Hear Me Now? walking the reader through the nuances of childhood, but as the journey into adulthood broadens, widens and yields to the twists and turns of maturity, the whisper becomes a scream, and near the book's conclusion, develops into a strong statement of affirmation: You Can Hear Me Now! You will discover how his life becomes intertwined with famous musicians, mayors, entrepreneurs, historians, actors and even the Family of the Late Martin Luther King Jr. Duane Parham is a fixture in Detroit, a national and international saxophonist and a legend in Detroit's Jazz Hall of Fame. You will get a candid look at the life of the Motown/Jazz/Gospel Legend and share in the lessons he learned in establishing the "key of life."
