Rhythm and Blues notable performs in Sasser

August 4, 2007

Sasser -- A crowd in Sasser enjoyed the sounds of rhythm and blues artist Clarence Carter tonight.

The 71 -year-old singer performed at his first major concert in Albany Georgia in 1968. He also had his first hit, "Slip Away" right here in Southwest Georgia.

Even after all of these years he still enjoys playing for a crowd.

"Every time I go on stage I really still get excited," Clarence Carter. "I always said that when I get to the point when I don't get excited when I go on stage , I'll retire than."

Some of Carter's other hits include "Strokin" and "Patches". He has been inducted into Alabama's and Georgia's Music Hall of Fame.

Clarence Carter is currently working on an album that he hopes to release by the end of the year.
