Soap Opera News: Music Men
Did you ever think the day would come that you’d see The Young and the Restless’ Eric Braeden (Victor) in a music video? There’s a very good reason for the surprise turn, and the actor explains why.

Is there a cuter father-daughter duo in daytime? DAYS’ Brandon Barash (ex-Stefan) and his #1 gal, Harper, are absolutely adorable singing Marvin Gaye classic Midnight Lady.
Meanwhile, a handsome leading man will be logging more time at Days in 2020. And, speaking of Salem men, a new doctor turned up at the show’s hospital, who has a special tie to one of Days’ head honchos.
