A Taste of Chapin

I've probably seen a few hundred concerts over the last thirty years and nobody -- nobody -- held sway over an audience like Harry Chapin. His story songs were unsubtle and pretty sentimental, but when you were sitting in front of him, he had the power to mesmerize you. He was a consummate entertainer. His tremendous charitable efforts and his campaign to end world hunger set the standard for all other performers. Without Harry, there would never had been "We Are The World" and other similar campaigns. He was the rare individual who believed he had to do more with his success than simply get rich.

Sit back and enjoy one of Harry Chapin's signature songs.
