Bishop Cistone sings 'Saginaw, Michigan' at 2010 Charity Ball

The Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw, sings Lefty Frizzell's 1964 No. 1 country hit "Saginaw, Michigan" during the 2010 Bishop's Charity Ball at the Horizons Conference Center in Saginaw. The Bishop's Charity Ball benefits Catholic schools and parish religious education programs. This year's event was the first for Citstone, who was installed as the Diocese of Saginaw's sixth bishop in July 2009. "Saginaw, Michigan" was Lefty Frizzell's sixth and final number one on the U.S. country chart. "Saginaw, Michigan" spent a total of twenty-three weeks on the country chart and peaked at number eighty-five on the Billboard Hot 100. The song earned Lefty Frizzell a Grammy nomination. It earned Bishop Cistone a big applause and a lot of laughs.
