Sixties Rocker Tommy James Shares His Testimony
Thu., Oct. 7. 2010 12:21am EDT
Most fans of 60's music recognize the name of Tommy James, who scored two #1 hits with "Hanky Panky" and "Crimson and Clover," and five other top 10 hits from 1966-69 with "I Think We're Alone Now," "Mony Mony," "Crystal Blue Persuasion," "Mirage," and "Sweet Cherry Wine." James also had a top 10 solo hit in 1971 with "Draggin' the Line," and a comeback hit in 1980 with "Three Times in Love."
James' real last name is actually Jackson, and his first big break came in Pittsburgh PA, where "Hanky Panky" first became a smash hit two years after its initial unsuccessful release. As you know, we're kind of partial to Jacksons and Pittsburgh, not to mention the song "Mony Mony," so of course we were interested when James recently shared his story and his testimony about Jesus Christ working in his life on The 700 Club.
We though you might be interested, too, so if you'd like to see it for yourself:
Thanks to ApologetiX fan David Michael for bringing this to our attention.
