Upshaw Briggs, 59, became interested in music at age 9 when he first heard Elvis’s “Hound Dog." For his birthday that year he was given piano lessons.
“I was not impressed at the time because I was expecting a bicycle,” Briggs said.
But he would soon learn that music was his passion. As a kid he enjoyed sports, but he broke his leg playing sandlot baseball, and music took over.
It was always a part of his life. He played piano for church and sang in the choir as he grew up.
