It's autumn. The leaves are down on the ground. Isabella is playing her guitar. She likes blue. She has blue shoes, pants, shirt, and nail polish. She has a wig on today. Her real hair is blond. She's covering it up. Her hair style is like the Supremes. She lives in the midwest--Hitsville USA--Detroit, Motown. She doesn't have a pick. She's plucking her guitar with her nails. She's in her early twenties. She's in good shape. Isabella's guitar has blue on it too.
Isabella is in her back yard. She's playing jazz. BB King's "The Thrill is Gone," and Elvis Presley's "You Ain't Nothin but a Hound Dog" and "Blue Suede Shoes."
Isabella is hoping for a big hit. Her initials are on the guitar. BB King gave it to her. He came to visit, to do a concert. She's been a fan for a long time and her friends gave her a surprise back door pass so she could meet him in person. BB asked her, "What can I do of you?" and she said, "If I could only have one of your guitars." "Of course," said BB. Isabella told him that she was a fan since she was a little girl.
BB took Isabella on a road trip to play with his band. They went to Nashville and New York, the big apple! Then they went overseas to tour with the service people. She was the special guest on stage and now she's getting a lot of publicity. She's going to tell her parents and friends and the whole town will be talking about her.
She'll be on TV, on the Oprah show in Chicago. She'll tell Oprah that she's been doing some traveling. Oprah will ask Isabella, "How long have you been wanting to meet BB King?"
"Since I was a little girl and saw him on the Ed Sullivan show," said Isabella. She plays "The Thrill is Gone" and BB King comes out from behind the curtain and surprises Oprah. Oprah is speechless. She's usually the one who does the surprises. This time, Isabella is surprising Oprah.
Isabella's guitar from BB King is called Lucille. It's her prized possession. It's going to be worth money but she'll never get rid of it. It made her famous. Opportunities will be knocking on her door. She's touring herself now. She picked up tips from BB King about how not to have stage fright. She was on America's Got Talent. She played to thousands of people.
Her life will be beautiful. She'll never stop playing and other people that follow her will be asking for a guitar. She'll have one with her signature on it. She kept the original guitar from BB King but she gives away her guitars called Bella. Bella means beautiful in Italian and that's what she is.
