When you want an entertainer
"Hardly anybody knows this, but I'm really quite famous."
Eddie Thompson - CroonerEd - is a professional musician and entertainer. He grew up in a singing family where they performed around the country and recorded Thompson Family albums. At age 17, Ed won a nation-wide talent competition sponsored by the Gospel Music Association including his first recording contract. He's since recorded three CDs, been the warm-up-act for Bob Carlisle (of "Butterfly Kisses" fame), had several charted radio singles, performed all over the USA, "donated" two knees to the Wheaton College football team, and wrote a book titled, "Monkeys In My Coconut Tree" (2016 Readers Favorite Silver Medal award winner). He also ate a Brussels sprout which he says it was a terrible accident. "Easy Eddie" is also the President of LOGOI.org, a wonderful ministry founded by his father in 1968. He's loved Big Bang music and jazz standards his entire life and has a great time performing them in his wonderful, fun and "easy" style. "You can't help but smile and have a great time while singing these amazing songs. The music is happy and always connects with others as it brings back such wonderful memories. Besides it's just so much fun! "
