Filmmaker attempting to secure funding for music documentary

TUSCUMBIA - Most recording artists know when the audience is cheering, they're into the music.

If they're silent, there's something wrong.

It's just the opposite for Percy Sledge, the man whose hit "When a Man Loves a Woman" helped bring Muscle Shoals music to the world.

"When they're quiet, I've got 'em," Sledge said in an interview that will be part of a short presentation that filmmaker Wallace Sears will use to get backing for a major documentary on Muscle Shoals music.

Sears began shooting short interviews with the movers and shakers of early Muscle Shoals music last week in Nashville and the Shoals.

The video, which could be described as a trailer, will contain just enough information to whet the appetites of producers.
