Then he'll tell the story about shocking the entertainment world with his wild adventure into the world of Heavy Metal. Pat will share his contribution to gospel music and then he'll sing a clip from the "pop song" that shared the gospel back in 1958. You'll get a sneak peak at Pat's soon to be released new book, called "IF" set to be published in September. At 88 years old he is making waves and helping change lives.
