Domino’s favorite instrument was the piano. He learned to play the piano from his brother-in-law at the age of ten. His pianos instructor was a jazz music guitarist, Harrison Verrett.
As Domino’s was raised in a large family of 11 members with poor economic conditions it was really hard to get a proper academic education in childhood. His family was not able to send him to school although he didn’t like to go to school either. All his loves were only and only for music.
Domino’s started to work when he was just 14 to support himself and his family financially. He used to perform in New Orleans bars.
In 1947, Domino was performing in a backyard barbecue program. In this program, a local bandleader named Billy Diamond was invited to see this young artist’s performance.
Domino’s performance was so wonderful and captivating that it not only amused Diamond but also overwhelmed him. Instantly Diamond recognized Domino’s extraordinary talent and offer him to play with his band the Solid Senders, at the Hideaway Club in New Orleans. Where Dominos would get 3 dollars per week for playing the piano.
Joined with the Solid Senders Domino started his musical career. Most of the musician has a nickname because undoubtedly it carriage a wight and it helps newcomer musician to get familiar with the public.
Diamond gave Domino’s the name Fats Domino. Because Domino reminded him of the famous pianist’s Fats Waller and Fats Pichon and also Domino’s body shape is the reason for his nickname.
Domino made his first album in 1949 with Imperial Records. That song widely regarded as the first rock and roll song that has sold a million copies.

Domino was one of the first musicians to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1986. In 1998 president Bill Clinton awarded him The National medal of Arts. In 2005 Hurricane Katrina attacked New Orleans. In this flood, Domino had lost many things and his presidential award too. So in 2006 president George Bush personally visited him and replaced the national award of arts. He was also achieved Grammy Life Time Achievement Award.
Racism is such a problem where the love of the world and humanity stumbles repeatedly. People then lose sight of seeing others only as human beings. We tend to judge a human species by looking at the skin.
There is no survey that can count the death of people causes racism. Tons of people sacrifice their lives for racism. Many talented people remain invisible forever because of racism. Their great work stays in dark eternally that could be made this world a better place.
Though the problem has slowed down for time being still it’s not gone entirely. In the late 1950s racism was a major problem in America. Black people had to face so many problems and obviously, they didn’t get as many as opportunities like white people.
Back then most of the black people worked under white people and lived an inhumane life of oppression and exploitation. But some people always find a way to represent themselves to the world through hard work, struggle, and immeasurable willpower.
Fats Dominos was one of them. Ignoring this huge problem of racism, this great artist has immortalized himself through his work. We will discuss how Domino’s earned his worldwide fame, his career, his little bio, how much worth he owned during his lifetime, and how people still remember him because of his great contribution.
