Vice President Richard Nixon cut the ribbon to open the American display at the World’s Fair in Moscow on July 24, 1959. He was showing Premier Nikita Khrushchev the Russian leader an American home when he and Khrushchev started arguing about the merits of their countries.
Khrushchev particularly enjoyed waving bye bye to the American way of life alluding to the thought that Russia would surpass the United States and leave us in the dust.
Less than a year later Russia would shoot down American pilot Gary Powers who was piloting a U2 spy plane sending the two countries into the Cold War.
This video of the Kitchen Debate shows Vice President Richard Nixon and Premier Nikita Khrushchev in their famous debate that took place in the American display at the World’s Fair in Moscow on July 24, 1959.
Buddy Mullins singing the southern gospel classic The Lighthouse one of the most loved songs ever recorded. Mullins sings the song with the late Kenny Hinson’s wife in the audience. Hinson had died of cancer.
The Ryman Reunion Homecoming Concert is my favorite of the Gaither homecomings. Christianbook.com has clips of the songs which were sung at the concert and the sound of these great songs will evoke memories of southern gospel at its best.
Quinn Sullivan who will be 11 on March 26 has been playing the guitar since the age of three.
Blues singer-guitarist Buddy Guy has spotlighted Sullivan in his concerts. Sullivan plays riffs that accomplished guitarists can only dream about.
Playing this well at an early age should be a springboard to a long and successful career. He first appeared on national television in 2006 on the Ellen DeGeneres show and has since appeared on the Today and Oprah Winfrey shows.
The following videos show how his career has evolved since 2006:
Buddy Guy introduces Sullivan at the age of 8 during his concert in 2007 and Guy is amazed at his talent at such an early age.

It will be interesting to watch and listen to Quinn Sullivan as his career continues to grow and he has a bright future ahead of him and should be able to make a living for years to come playing the electric blues on his guitar.
