THE WORLD FAMOUS PLATTERS will be performing their classic musical hits like “Only You” (their first big hit),” “The Great Pretender,” “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes,” “It’s Magic,” “My Prayer,” “Twilight Time,” and many other songs that we all have come to treasure.
Join this legendary musical group as they carry on their musical tradition and perform their renowned hits of the 50s and 60s. This distinctive group's timeless melodies will take audiences, both young and old, back to a time when love songs and romantic ballads enraptured your heart and comforted your soul.
THE WORLD FAMOUS PLATTERS is licensed to perform all the classic hits of the group by Jean Bennett of Personality Productions. The group is composed of five multi-talented artists: Eddie Stovall, Sr., Eddie Stovall, Jr., Yolanda Fletcher, Lawrence “Rooster” Lockard and Jerome Dabney. Although none of the members of the World Famous Platters have performed with the original Platters as a group, its leader and lead singer, Eddie, actually toured and performed with the original Platters lead singer and front man Tony Williams when he went solo performing the Platters classics.
Their show has been a regular feature in Branson, Missouri for years and they were the recipient of the 1999 Vocal Group of the Year in Branson Award.
