Personality: The Lloyd Price Musical Opening Night
Share this post:
We all know about the unifying power of music, and no one’s sound brought people together quite like the trailblazing Lloyd Price who became a legend in the 20th century. In 1952, Price recorded his first record, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy.” Price became a crossover hit, popular with both Black and white kids, breaking down the “race records” barrier in the industry. Lloyd was the first teenager to sell over a million records, first black teenager to get airplay on white stations and the first artist to start their own record label. Price dreamed and achieved change through his music, manner, and mindset. He defined the times and inspired people of all races and ages. Lloyd Price was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998 — this musical celebrates his life and legacy.
