Billy Preston


Billy Preston was a prodigy. By age 9, he’d mastered the Hammond Organ. At 10, he performed with Nat King Cole and recorded with Mahalia Jackson. At 15, Little Richard took him on a European Tour. In the late ’60s, Billy joined The Beatles on their farewell rooftop concert and was the only artist ever to share a songwriting credit with the rockers. In the early ’70s, he regularly toured with the Rolling Stones. And his greatest fame came on his own, with a slew of popular hits including "Nothin’ From Nothin", "Will It Go Round in Circles," "You Are So Beautiful" and "With You I’m Born Again." But the joy Billy shared in his music was masking a deep sadness.
