Harry Belafonte was scheduled to appear on a Bakersfield, California, television station Friday (October 14) to promote his new memoir, My Song, but things didn’t exactly go according to plan.
Anchor Leyla Santiago introduced the “Day O” singer by talking about his new book and HBOdocumentary, when the cameras cut to the 84-year old singer he was fast asleep.
“Harry, wake up! Harry?” Santiago exclaimed. “Wake up, wake up! This is your wake-up call Harry! Okay, I’ll tell you what, he’s meditating. He’s taking a little nap.”
