Profile Bio Text
Charles Eugene "Pat" Boone (born June 1, 1934) is an American singer, actor and writer who was a successful pop singer in the United States during the 1950s and early 1960s. He sold over 45 million albums, had 38 top-40 hits and starred in over 12 Hollywood movies. Boone`s talent as a singer and actor, his old-fashioned values contributed to his popularity in the pre-rock and roll era. He continues to entertain and perform. Boone was successful in multiple ways. He hosted a network television show, The Pat Boone Chevy Show from 1957-1959. He has written many books and had a No. 1 Bestseller in the 1950s ("Twixt Twelve and Twenty", Prentice-Hall). His cover versions of African-American rhythm and blues hits had a noticeable effect on the development of the broad popularity of rock and roll. During his tours in the 1950s, Elvis Presley was one of his opening acts.
According to Billboard, Boone was the second biggest charting artist of the late 1950s, behind only Elvis Presley but ahead of Ricky Nelson and The Platters, and was ranked at No. 9 - behind The Rolling Stones and Paul McCartney but ahead of artists such as Aretha Franklin, Chicago and The Beach Boys - in its listing of the Top 100 Top 40 Artists 1955-1995. In the 1960s, he focused on gospel music and is a member of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Many today believe strongly that he should be a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, including Mike Curb, a former lieutenant governor of California and the founder of Curb Records. Boone still holds the Billboard record for spending 220 consecutive weeks on the charts with more than one song. Boone is also a motivational speaker, a television personality, a conservative political commentator and a popular Christian activist, writer and preacher.
