|Hometown - Omaha, Nebraska|
|Percy Le'Roy Chatman...My heart... my soul... my mentor...my big brother and (more importantly) my inspiration for creating this Omaha Black Music Hall Of Fame.
Percy was born in Shelby, Mississippi to loving parents, Robert and Ernestine Chatman. After the family moved to Omaha, Nebraska, Percy began singing as a teenager in various local singing groups. In 1955, Percy Chatman, Clyde Walker, Jimmy Kelly and others formed a singing group called The Mixers. The Mixers soon made their way to Chicago,Illinois, where they recorded a two sided 45. After returning to Omaha, and for many years thereafter, Percy began a solo singing career, performing in local Omaha night clubs such as The Workman Club, The Off Beat, The Elks Hall, Allen's Show Case, Club Lido and The Midwest Club.
Known as "Mr. Omaha", Percy Le'Roy Chatman, strikingly handsome, with a silky smooth voice, a big smile and a even bigger heart, was called to heaven on June 19, 1990, leaving behind a host of family and friends and a little brother who will forever remember, love,respect and honor his big brother…
Always and Forever… Vaughn Richard Chatman
