‘The Golden Platter’ takes the stage | Union County Weekly
www.unioncountyweekly.com, 7 Dec 2013 [cached]
Known as "The Golden Platter," former Platters member Milton Bullock will take the stage in a concert to benefit the Unionville Lions Club.
...
Together, Bullock and Tate will take audience members back in time with music from the 1950s and 60s.
...
"It was the Lions Club that was the first to come and help my hometown get back on its feet," Bullock said.
Since then, Bullock has established a Lions Club in Princeville and currently serves as the club's president. He also travels to many different towns, performing to support their Lions Clubs.
...
Walker got to know Bullock personally and learned more about his Lions Club fundraising efforts.
...
One thing led to another, and with the help of several local sponsors - including Union Power Cooperative and the Union County Community Arts Council - Walker booked Bullock to perform for the Unionville Lions Club.
...
Bullock was first discovered on a whim when he was visiting his uncle in Brooklyn, N.Y. Then a teenager, Bullock would often sing to himself as he worked outside. One day, a woman passing by stopped and told Bullock she'd been listening to him sing for three days and asked him if he'd ever considered singing professionally. The woman knew the publisher of the group The Platters in Manhattan and connected Bullock with the group.
Bullock subsequently joined The Platters and performed as the group's first tenor from 1965 to 1971. During that time, the group released a number of worldwide hit singles, such as "Only You," "The Great Pretender," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" and "Sweet, Sweet Lovin'."
Following his departure from the group, Bullock branched out into film work, playing roles in motion pictures like "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York," "Prelude to a Kiss," "Straight Talk" with Dolly Parton and the underground boxing movie "Gladiator."
...
Bullock also began charity work and established the Do It For the Kids Foundation, which promotes the welfare of America's youth.
Do It For the Kids is collaborating with the Lions Club to raise money to purchase a camera that uses newly discovered technology that can detect dormant eye issues in children as early as six months that may cause vision problems after age 8.
With this new technology, these conditions can be detected before they start surfacing, allowing families and doctors to take steps to prevent, avoid or alleviate serious problems. The cameras cost about $10,000 each, which is why successful and frequent fundraising is critical. "There are eye issues that are overlooked because (doctors) are still using the old method of covering one eye," Bullock said. "We're trying to get this camera in every district in the country. The services don't cost the parent or kid one dime, only time. That's what propels me and drives me beyond my imagination. It's critical that our kids see."
Which is why Bullock continues to travel, performing for Lions Clubs every chance he gets. "That's how I want to be remembered," he said.

Having seen Milton perform last year, I can truly say this guy is great! His voice is excellent and when he starts singing those oldie hit songs by the Platters, it sounds so much like the original recordings.

The Platters were formed in the 50's and had numerous member changes during that period, Though widely known for their early hits, the group continued its successful recording career years after, and Milton Bullock was fortunate to be a big part of that era. Milton was asked to join the Platters in 1964 by Herb Reed.
...
When the Platters decided to disband, Milton continued his work in the music and film industry. You may have seen him in roles in such films as "Home Alone 2" and "Prelude to a Kiss", among others. Presently, he is performing solo as "The Golden Platter", wowing audiences young and old with his sensational voice. In addition, he produces his internationally famous musical showcase "Back Down Memory Lane".
Though most people are familiar with Milton Bullock's entertainment credentials, what he is most proud of is his work with kids. His organization "Do It For The Kids/Children Foundation" is committed to the welfare of America's at-risk youth. He has been able to use his celebrity status to motivate young people as well as to bring other celebrities into the act of giving troubled kids an inspiration to succeed.
In addition to his work with youth, Milton spends a great deal of effort making life better for the elderly. He devotes a lot of his time during the year appearing at nursing homes and hospitals using his gift to put a smile on many older faces.
