Someone we know and love is enjoying his 15 minutes of fame, although it’s been much longer than 15 minutes! HIS Radio General Manager Allen Henderson took a My Heritage DNA test and last month found out he has a brother in France. It came as quite a shock, which he explained on HIS Morning Crew.
His brother Andre has been searching for his family for his whole life and Allen was the answer to that prayer. Andre knew very little about his father, except that he was an American soldier who came to France during World War II.
My Heritage DNA flew Allen and his wife Nelline, who also works at HIS Radio, out to France last week so that the brothers could meet for the first time. Allen and Andre have been swarmed by media from all over the world. Allen and Nell have been getting recognized on the streets of Paris and Normandy.
French TV called them and begged them to stay in France for a few more days. They even offered to pay for flights and hotels but Allen and Nell had to say no because they are due in New York City to appear on Fox and Friends Friday.
