PORTLAND, Ore. — During his speak at TEDx Portland in April, Kary Youman informed the story about how he’d acquired an e mail months earlier that changed his life and “shook the core of [his] complete household tree.”
Youman stated he’d found his biological father after greater than 20 years, and discovered that his dad is a Grammy nominated songwriter who has collaborated with artists together with Prince and Chaka Khan.
Who was his dad? Youman left the stage at Keller Auditorium in April with out saying. That’s one heck of a cliffhanger, so I tracked him right down to see how the story ended.

Father and son arranged to satisfy right here in Portland, and sat down with me just ninety minutes after seeing one another nose to nose for the first time. Wow!
Kary tells me why he is sharing this personal story and what he hopes you will study from his journey that would help make your personal family stronger.
Poignant. Inspiring. Funny. Reflective. This conversation is all that. Plus, in case you’re a Prince fan, you will love the detour we took to Paisley Park.
