One Veteran patient described Chuck Fisher’s voice as having the warble of the King himself.

Army Veteran Chuck Fisher, and his “manager” wife Sarah, entertained Veteran patients, CLC residents and employees at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center Thursday, August 7 with a musical show.

Singing for most of his life, Fisher brought his act to the Charleston facility in hopes to put a smile on a least one Veteran’s face.

“As a Veteran myself, I feel a connection to these men and women,” said Fisher. “Whether young or old, I like to cater my musical selection to everyone’s tastes.”

Fisher’s grab-bag of songs was a delight for everyone and included tunes from Marty Robbins to the more modern Brooks and Dunn. Patrons in the audience even felt compelled to get up and slow dance to songs that made them remember their first love and brought tears to the eyes of others.

Between songs, Fisher gave compelling commentary about his love and adventures in the music world.

One Veteran gave a tearful thanks to Fisher after the show, telling him some of the tunes took him back in time to being deployed during Vietnam.

Fisher was beyond grateful for the opportunity to meet Veterans during his visit.

“If I can touch the life of just one person during my show, I have succeeded in my mind.”
