Since then I was hooked to his music. I followed his Facebook page, his Twitteraccount and lately, his Instagram too! (BTW, my dad's a fan of him as well and he loves singing his songs along with me and my four-year-old son, Carl). For those who aren't familiar with the man, he wrote and sang "Proud Mary"(I'm sure most of you know Tina Turner's version, yes?) and "Fortunate Son" (used in several films like Forest Gump and in the c…
