Chubby Checker is an American singer and legend who popularized the Twist, a Hank Ballard song and an accompanying dance in 1960. 2010 is the 50th anniversary of the Twist, and it is with great pleasure we present a special and interview with the legendary Chubby Checker.
Chubby Checker is the only recording artist to place five albums in the Top 12 all at once. He changed the way we dance to the beat of music, Checker told Billboard, "Anyplace on the planet, when someone has a song that has a beat, they're on the floor dancing apart to the beat. And before Chubby Checker, it wasn't here."
Enjoy the show!
