Simon Estes

“…the consummate artist…”—Dr. Maya Angelou

The inspiring autobiography of bass-baritone Simon Estes, grandson of a slave, son of a servant, who rose from a humble background to achieve worldwide fame as an opera star and humanitarian.

“…I was deeply moved…”—Archbishop Desmond M. Tutu

Bass-baritone opera singer Simon Estes, grandson of a slave, son of a servant, rose from a humble childhood of poverty, and overcame early years of prejudice and discrimination with faith, hard work and determination, to achieve worldwide fame as a star of the opera stage.

His story is an inspiring African-American success story. He has performed for five U. S. presidents, kings and queens of numerous European countries, in every major opera house in the world, yet has never forgotten his small-town Iowa home. Mr. Estes is acclaimed not only for his voice but for his humanitarian efforts for the educational and health needs of youth worldwide.

His inspiring autobiography contains over 200 full-color photos and illustrations, many from private collections and previously unpublished.
