Do What You Do
Written by Larry DiTommaso, Ralph Dino
Performed by Jermaine Jackson
Do What You Do Why don’t you do what you do
When you did what you did to me
Love was so good, that it fills up all my needs
I was crazy for you, you were crazy for me
How could something so right, go so wrong …

Einstein Etch A Sketch Design
The Einstein sketch shown here is one of the artist’s personal favorites and sold for $5,000!
USA Today Interview When I was a little kid, 4 or 5, my parents gave me an Etch A Sketch for Christmas. When I was a teenager, I did celebrities, like Cary Grant, James Cagney, Stevie Wonder, Cher, Jay Leno. I was considered gifted as a kid. I was born with it. How long does it take? It varies. I was recently on Donny & Marie. I did their portraits on TV. I started before the show and finished in less than an hour. It can be done that fast.

Lindsay Tomasic with Michelle Mangione, Larry Tuttle, Novi Novog
Save Your Fork, There’s Pie It’s a chilly autumn morning and the clouds are hanging low
I’ve got my morning coffee, but my engine’s running slow
Heading north on 23, with a long, long way to drive
The thought of her home cooking, well, it keeps my soul alive
And I can hear her sayin’ with a twinkle in her eye
Enjoy this meal before you girl, now save your fork, there’s pie

She wanted to enter a song in a contest that Yamaha was holding in Japan and we didn’t have time to develop a new song and make the required entry deadline. I suggested “Party Lights” because the track was basically finished and all she had to do was sing the song and bring it to life. She liked the song, re-sang the lead vocal and we remixed it, entered it into the contest and won.

About Beau Williams
Beau Williams was raised on Gospel music in Houston, Texas. As a teenager, he regularly appeared on a local live television show and had a regional hit record.
In 1984 he competed as a male vocalist on Star Search and defeated thirteen-week champion Sam Harris. During this time he recorded several albums for Capitol Records: a self-titled album in 1982, Stay With Me (1983), Bodacious! (1984), and No More Tears (1986).
Following his association with Capitol, Beau Williams signed with Light Records and returned to his roots in Gospel music. His album Wonderful (1989) debuted at the number nine spot on Billboard’s chart, landed at two, and stayed in the top ten family for 58 weeks. The album earned a Dove Award for “Song of the Year,” as well as Grammy, Stellar, and James Cleveland Award nominations.
Beau Williams is one of the most sought after National Anthem singers in the United States. The Los Angeles Lakers relied on his powerful vocal skills for six years. He’s also performed for the Texas Rangers (MLB), Dallas Cowboys (NFL), and Houston Rockets (NBA).
The label and management booked me on “Star Search” in early 1984. My job was simple–out-sing the reigning male vocal champ, Sam Harris. Simple, indeed. Sam went on, sang his song, took a bow. Then I came on, sang “A Song for You” and boom! I won the vote.
