KQED Life: Sun, Feb 13, 2011 -- 10:00 PM

This special chronicles music legend Fats Domino's triumphant return to the stage after Hurricane Katrina's devastation to his New Orleans hometown. Two years after a harrowing rescue from the storm, Domino headlined a 2007 benefit concert for the city, performing hits like "Blueberry Hill," and "Ain't That a Shame" to an adoring audience. Narrated by actor John Goodman, it captures the concert and provides an up-close, biographical look at Domino's storied career. It also includes rare interviews with Domino as well as singers Dr. John, Allen Toussaint, Robert Plant and Randy Newman, who discuss how this legendary performer has inspired their careers.
