Sonny Turner
Sunday, April 8

Sonny Turner rose to fame in 1959 after being chosen out of 100 prospects to replace The Platters’ original lead singer, Tony Williams.  As the new lead vocalist of The Platters, Turner began touring the world with the group at age 19, performing top hits “I Love You 1,000 Times,” “With This Ring” and “Washed Ashore.” Turner also re-recorded The Platters’ most celebrated hits “Only You,” “The Great Pretender” and “The Magic Touch.” The Platters went on to become one of the most successful vocal groups in music history.

The famous vocalist left The Platters to begin his solo career in 1970. Turner’s vocals were later featured on the soundtracks of the movies “The Nutty Professor II” starring Eddie Murphy, “Hearts in Atlantis” starring Anthony Hopkins and “Prince of the City” starring Robert DeNiro.

In 2005, Consumer’s Entertainment Exchange and the Doo Wop Hall of Fame presented Turner with The Lifetime Excellence in Entertainment Award. Turner was also inducted into The Vocal Group Hall of Fame and the Beach Music Hall of Fame for his musical contributions to The Platters.
