Best of Brooklyn: 91-year-old singing sensation

A 91-year-old singing sensation from East Flatbush hasn't let age slow him down.



Johnny Brandon was once a chart-topping singer and Tony Award nominee. Brandon has been singing since he was a little boy growing up in England. He was known as the "King of Zing" in the UK with hit songs like "Tomorrow" and his favorite, "Slow Coach."



Brandon moved to the U.S. in 1960 after meeting the love of his life, Bob Richardson. He continued singing and wrote two smash-hit off-Broadway shows. The 91-year-old was nominated for a Tony and won a host of other showbiz awards for his work. 



Brandon has just finished writing a tap musical, which he says he would like to show in New York or Broadway.
