What Armstrong did and How He Affected Me

This artist was very significant during the Harlem Renaissance. Armstrong influenced rock music and he maintained his brilliance as a fantastic trumpeter. Armstrong affected my life because he taught me that me that new is good. You shouldn't be afraid to try anything new in the world. You have every right in the world to express yourself freely.

What If Armstrong Was Never Born?

If this person was never born a diverse style of music would have never been brought to the public eye. There would be no such thing of scat music and or any of those catchie songs such as, "What A Wonderful World."
