It’s never too late to pursue your dreams. Ask Madeline Forman, who reached her goal as a music star at the age of 94, about 75 years after she started performing.
Forman said today that he recorded the records he sang in the 1940s and 1950s. She loved to sing and even won talent competitions without formal training, but knew she could not continue her career. .
“I knew it wasn’t working for me at the time,” Forman said. “We were poor, so we did what we had to do. With the music playing in the background, it was.
Forman erased the records, and while she was cleaning her house that had just sold, they remained intact until she met them last year.
“I said, ‘Oh, my God, what’s in here? “” Forman remembers. “I took it out to see it…. I could not believe it. I haven’t seen this in years.
Forman managed to find a record player so that he could listen to the recording again. She handed them over to parents in the music industry. Relatives were overwhelmed by his vocal talent. The parent arranged for Forman to come to the Shorefire Recording Studio in Long Branch, NJ, where she re-recorded the song “Don’t rob me of your love”.
“I can still sing the song well,” Forman said. “I sing well and I laugh.
Forman wasn’t the only one to mark this particular song. Musical legends such as Frank Sinatra, Etta James, and Bing Crosby have all performed this number.
“What class do I belong to?” Forman joked.
In addition to “Don’t Take Your Love From Me,” several other Forman recordings have been remastered, shared online and released. A documentary on Forman was also made.
“It’s amazing,” she said. “It gets a lot of attention. I couldn’t imagine… Music is music. You never leave, do you? It’s still there.
Forman said he wants his story to inspire others to pursue their passion, no matter how reluctant they may seem.
“Never give up,” Forman said. “If you like something, stick to it. Your dreams will come true.
