Music does not make millions, it also moves millions. The same can be said of Louis Armstrong, an enduring jazz icon and one of the greatest musicians of all time, who was born on 4th August, 1901, in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. Armstrong took the Jazz to a whole new level, and boasts of many loyal fans all over the globe.
Louis was born into a very poor family. His father was a factory worker and abandoned the family soon after his birth. His mother also left him to his grandmother. Due to these personal situations, he left school in fifth grade and begin working at a young age. A Jewish family gave him work and also encouraged him to sing.
