EASTER 2009: Tip O' The Hat
At President Obama’s Inauguration, Aretha Franklin delivered a powerful rendition of ”My Country Tis of Thee." But it was her hat that caught the attention of the world.
Nancy Giles meets the man behind the hat. His name is Luke Song and his shop, Mr. Song Millinery, has been a staple in Detroit since 1982.
Song has been called an ”accidental milliner“ because neither he nor his family expected him to go into the family business. He studied biochemistry in college, thinking he’d become a doctor. And then he studied art in New York City. But when he returned to Detroit in 1997, he was inspired to create a hat out of chicken wire that became an instant hit with customers and allowed him to pay off his student loans within a year.
