From the Inside Flap
With family values founded upon a Godly heritage, character-building struggle and sacrifice, Simon Estes successfully faced each new hurdle and career challenge, culminating in triumph for this talented perfroming artist.
At age eight, Simon Estes began singing in church with his family. At the University of Iowa his mentor, Charles Kellis, introduced Simon to classical music.
After a year at The Juilliard School of Music in New York City, Simon made his debut in 1965 with Deutsche Oper Berlin as Ramfis in Aida.
1966 brought third place in the first Tchaikovsky Vocal Competition and a White House appearance.
Since then Simon Estes has sung for United States presidents, kings, and queens, and numerous other world leaders. (Back cover) - "Simon Estes is the consummate artist . . . the gifts of the artist remind us of the love of the Creator. Thank you Simon Estes."
- Dr. Maya Angelou,
Beloved poet, author, and teacher. (Back cover)
"I was deeply moved reading Simon Estes' story, and I have marvelled that despite all the anguish he has suffered, he could be so whole, so magnanimous, so ready to forgive . . . Simon Estes is indeed a worthy role model.
- The Most Rev. Desmond M. Tutu,
Archbishop Emeritus of Cape Town at the South
