Since the passing of Johnny Harra, some not so nice things have been said about me. If Johnny were here he would set the record straight, but since he isn't, I will. My name is Mary Scott. I met Johnny Harra in 2007. Johnny asked me if I would be his Secretary, which I agreed to it. I was Johnny's Secretary from 2007 up until his passing on March 30, 2011.
Johnny was living on a small ss check every month. Since he has been a ETA for 40+ years, that's all he knew how to do for a living. After taking some time off, Johnny was trying to get some work as an ETA to make some extra income. He was getting a few small gigs here and there. But his dream was to perform in front of huge audiences again.
Johnny didn't have the funds to pay me so I donated my services, which Johnny greatly appreciated. I helped Johnny with several projects. You can hear Johnny give reference to me here or go to Johnny Harra Birthday show. On the blog talk radio Johnny Harra show that I created for Johnny.
On my Youtube channel yesterdaytoday56 I created several promotional video's to help promote Johnny. Soon after Johnny's passing, I removed those promotional video's. For reference, I have the video's on file.
In 2011, Johnny had no insurance so the family was struggling to raise funds to pay for the funeral. I made a promotional video to help raise funds for Johnny's funeral, which I made a donation myself. I also created a video to help raise funds for a Head Stone. I have removed those promotional video's since his burial, and after a Head Stone was placed on his grave site.
I created and uploaded Tribute Video's to my other youtube channel Priority Video Productions. Which I will leave Johnny's tribute video's and his blog talk radio shows online for all of Johnny's fans to enjoy.
As of August 23, 2015, I decided to no longer create any new Johnny Harra Tribute video's or upload songs to Blog Talk Radio. Fans can enjoy the ones that are already there on my youtube channels mentioned above, and on Johnny's blog talk radio show.
Please note: Soon after Johnny's passing, his website Johnnyharrathelegend.com was sold. I have NO affiliation with the new owners.
Johnny's songs (over 300) were catalogued and copyrighted. Carla and Tina own the copyright.
I have my own fond memories of my close friendship & working with with Johnny Harra to reflect back on. Johnny often told me how some people were always trying to take advantage of his generosity. I wasn't one of them, Johnny often said he greatly admired that about me.
I said I would never upload anything of Johnny's again, ask myself is it worth the harassment... but I was going through my storage and some of the dvd's Johnny gave to me and recall this historical footage, asked myself why store it away, why not share it as that's what Johnny would want me to do. On the 6th anniversary of Johnny's passing here it is.
I Love and miss you Johnny! May you Rest in Peace.
