Meet Barry's mom Edna
Manilow. back in 1943 at
the tender age of 20 she
gave birth to her only kid
Barry Alan Pincus. Pincus
was Harold Kelliher mom's
maiden name before she
married her husband. Edna
diviorced Harold after Barry
turned two. Then when Barry
turned thirteen he got two
things a stepdad named Willie
Murphy and a piano. Willie
is the one Barry credits with
his love of jazz and Broadway
showtunes. Edna I'm sure was
the one who got Barry interested
in the standards. Judy Garland,
Frank Sinatra and others.
