Hap*y Birt**ay 2 U

By Joey Reynolds, SouthFloridaReporter.com, Sept. 15, 2015 – Nothing is sweeter than to hear the words  Happy Birthday to You sung to you on your special day by throngs of adoring friends and loved ones.  It is the most popular and well known song in the English language. The song, so sweet, so genuine is embroiled in an ongoing battle over who owns the rights to it and who should get paid for it. Millions are at stake. Hope the song is still around for my beautiful new granddaughter’s 1st birthday next year.
