Three Generations of Hamilton Team Up On “You’ll Never Walk Alone”

Roy Hamilton Jr. duets with legendary father, produced by son/grandson, Roy III

(PRUnderground) September 9th, 2020

Continuing the legacy of departed hit maker, Roy Hamilton (known for the smashes, “Don’t Let Go”, “You Can Have Her” and early success with “Unchained Melody” – which inspired the later version by the Righteous Brothers), son Roy Hamilton Jr. releases on September 9h, 2020 an updated version of his father’s classic rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” (from the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, Carousel) – produced by grandson, Roy Hamilton III, featuring the vocal track from Roy Sr.’s original 1954 recording.

Inspired by Natalie Cole’s now-legendary takes on the works of her father, Nat King Cole, which utilized a similar concept (her modern day singing with the vocal tracks from the past), the idea for “The Three Roys” came from longtime manager and wife of Roy, Jr. Maria Hamilton. “We worked on this for quite some time,” explained Roy, Jr. “My son came up with the arrangement, which incorporates not only my dad singing but elements from the original recording. After that was put together, I went into the recording booth and cut my vocals, which are in the same key as my father’s voice.”

Since Roy, Sr.’s version was cut in mono during the 1950’s, trying to extract his vocals from the recording would appear to be difficult. But for Roy Hamilton III, who wrote and produced works for artists such as Joe (the number one hit, “Stutter”, from 2000) as well as Brittney Spears, it was a challenge he succeeded in mastering. “I was able to equalize my grandfather’s recording to the point where only the vocals would be heard,” said Roy III. “That allowed me to create a newer instrumental track around his voice. At the same time, I did want to keep certain aspects of the original recording in the new mix to give it a classic flavor. So, a couple of string and horn sections were kept here and there, which I then incorporated into the piece.”

Roy Hamilton, Jr. will be promoting “You’ll Never Walk Alone” via social media and music outlets, starting in the fall. The single will be available on Amazon, iTunes and all streaming services.
