Fat Tuesday, February 24th, Third and Lindsley, Nashville,Tennessee. Born in Mobile, AL, Hal Newman had his first gig at age 3 singing "Sarah's Got a Secret", a spot for local business Sarah's Dollhouse. Though his talent was recognized early, he was prevented from taking formal lessons until age 5 when his hands were deemed large enough to play piano. "Growing up listening to radio in Mobile in the '50's, he tuned in to John R. in Nashville and to the New Orleans stations playing Ernie K. Doe, Benny Spellman and Lee Dorsey. These were his heroes," says Newman.
