\"Domino became a global star, but he remained loyal to his hometown, and his fate was initially unknown after Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005.
As a result, he and his family were rescued by boat from home, where he lost three pianos, dozens of gold and platinum records and other souvenirs.
Many people wonder if he will return to the stage.
He plans to perform at the New Orleans jazz and traditional music festival in 2006, and he just pays tribute to thousands of cheering fans.

\"All the girls love me because I know my way.
In 1955, he broke into the white pop charts with \"Isn\'t this a shame ---
But actually the lyrics are sung like this: \"It\'s not a shame.
The song was gently reported by Pat Boone as \"it\'s not a shame\" and was shaken by cheap tricks a few years later.
Dominoes enjoyed a series of successes in early 1960, including \"being my guest\" and \"I\'m ready \".
Another hit single, I\'m walking, became Ricky Nelson\'s first single.
