Alton Fitzgerald White, the actor who played Mufasa, the father of Simba in THE LION KING, for an unprecedented number of performances on Broadway, delivers a delightful and beautiful narration of this audiobook. It's part-memoir and part-life guide. Blessed with an irresistible honey-toned vocal quality, he tells of his troubled childhood with an alcoholic father and loving mother. Gradually, we learn of his training and ongoing preparation for becoming the first black actor to lead the Disney company in five Broadway hit musicals. His theme is the need for ongoing courage and thoughtful service to others and oneself. The encouragement and motivation demonstrated in White's stories will be valued by listeners seeking success in any endeavor.
