Tom Zé Story

In 1960, some members of the village arranged for Zé to appear on a popular TV talent contest called Stairs To Success. Despite having never seen a TV set before, he travelled to the show to perform, though when he arrived no one was expecting him. Thankfully they let him play anyway, with Zé performing a song called "Rampa Para O Fracasso" ("Ramp To Failure").
Great story from writer Paul Sullivan. 24-year-old Zé blags his way onto a TV show called "Stairs to Success" with a song entitled "Ramp To Failure".
