The Bear Creek community has voted Fats Waller as their favorite Harlem Renaissance musician at our 6th Annual Harlem Renaissance Party! We danced and jumped and all around boogied to the tunes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Fats Waller. After a good spread of tunes representing our nominees for the year the families voted on which performing artist tickled their toes the most. The votes were close. Ella came in as runner up with 26 votes and Fats Waller won with 27 votes! Hope you can join us next year! For more on Fats Waller click read more.
