From Rags To Riches: The Story Of Louis Armstrong
3. Jazz Man
When he was released from the home, Louis was keen to pursue a career in music and found a mentor in town - Joe 'King' and no we're not! At just 17 years old, he married prostitute Daisy Parker, and they adopted a three year old boy named Clarence who was mentally disabled. Armstrong cared for him his entire life.
