When asked his routine for caring for his distinctive voice and falsetto, the 72-year-old said, “Pray a lot. Just sing around the house, keep hitting the notes, not letting them get away.”

Neville performs Saturday night at A Taste of Colorado at Civic Center Park in Denver as he tours to promote his doo-wop album “My True Story.”

When asked what else he’d still like to do in his career, Neville said: “I just want to keep on singing ’til the year 3000. Until God tells me, ‘Break it up. It’s time to come home.’ Until then.”

MC Hammer and America also are among those scheduled to perform at the free-admission festival that runs Friday through Monday.
