You will laugh, you will be curious, and you may even cry as you join Mickey Burns in his incredible journey from the South Beach Projects of Staten Island, to the exciting set of his celebrity interview show “Profiles”, produced in Times Square, in the heart of New York City where he has interviewed over 500 celebrities.
Mickey also shares his personal story of how sports helped him gain an education, leave the New York City Housing Projects, and achieve later success in life as a TV Host. He also shares many of his most memorable and favorite celebrity interviews over the years, with some of the biggest names in show business, such as: Smokey Robinson, Deepak Chopra, Kandi Burress, George Foreman, Kenny G, Mario Lopez, Tony Orlando and Misty Copeland just to mention a few. Mickey’s stories will surprise you, entertain you and in some cases inspire you.
The book’s message is that through hard work and determination anyone can achieve success in life, no matter how humble their beginnings. It also reminds us that, when all is said and done, we are all in the game of life together and can learn from each other how to be our best person possible. “From The Projects To Profiles: A Memoir” by Mickey Burns is a great American Story!
