“My family would always play Louis Prima music in the house and I became I big fan. I used to sing some of his songs in my show. So, we decided to do a brand new “amped up” version of the song 5 MONTHS, 2 WEEKS, 2 DAYS.
We wrote a few changes into it and made it extra special by making it a duet with none other than Lena Prima , Louis’ daughter.” – Frankie Moreno
