Willie Mabon first wrote his hit song “Poison Ivy” in 1954. Mabon was an American R & B singer, songwriter, and pianist who is well known for his Billboard hots “I Don’t Know” and “I’m Mad”. In 1949 he started a group called the Blues Rocker who were recording for Aristocrat Records and then Chess Records. After “Poison Ivy” came out, Mabon’s career didn’t continue to be successful. In 1972 he decided to move to Paris and later recorded in Europe with Jim Simpson’s tour. A couple years after that he performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival which was one of the biggest honors as a jazz singer and songwriter. 2 years after he died after an illness he got in Paris.
My name is Isabella Jacome and I am currently a Sophomore at Rowan University. I am majoring in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Liberal Studies. I love write in my journal and write down what I did during the day or what happened. I enjoy working out and hanging out with friends. When I am home I volunteer to help kids with special needs play sports, including my brother who is autistic. 2 years ago I received an award for being buddy of the year which is just something the organization gives to one of the volunteers who has worked hard and been dedicated. I have been part of the Parent Of Special People (POSP) for a couple and years now which is why I want to eventually be a Special Education teacher. I also like to cook and go to the beach when it is nice outside.
