Louis Armstrong

Louis Armstrong lived in a fifty- cent-a-month shack in the black ghetto of New Orleans. His family seperated when he was five years-old. This caused Louis to grow up without a father. Louis developed a love for music when he was seven. He later started singing and made some money. Afterwards, he was taught how to play the bugle and that led to Louis playing the trumpet. Louis sang in the form of "Scat."
