Little Satchmo

USA2021documentary60'Relatives

She was a child who did not exist. A few years ago, Sharon Preston-Folta announced it to the world that she was the biological daughter of musical genius Louis Armstrong. Raised by a single mother, symbolically supported financially by her absent father, she grew up in the shadow of the star, with whom she had only occasional contact. Her childhood memories are those of brief visits, letters and scattered documents. Although hardly anyone knew of her existence because the famous jazzman was officially considered childless, Sharon does not seem to hold a grudge and, on the contrary, she is happy to finally expose herself to the world and tell her story.
