Charles Haugabrooks . . . what is there to say about Charles that hasn't already been said?
At times his voice is so dynamic as to remove the upholstery from the back pews and yet can be so
mellow that it's enchanting.
Charles not only sang the great Carols of the Season but also songs that brought a patriotic tear to one's eye.
After the concert, Charles came down and to the great joy of those remaining, continued singing - from memory no less - such songs as
Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, White Christmas and others.
It's always a great treat to listen to Charles sing.

Charles had the accompaniment of the very talanted pianist Mike Andrews
While speaking of talent, a young man by the name of Marc Bunney
happened to be visiting in the area. He heard that Charles was going to be giving a concert at our church and decided to come with
not only his lovely wife, but his alto saxophone. To say that Marc just played that instrument would definitely be an understatement.
The audience was totally awed by the talents of these three young men that night.
