Question
Who did a version of the song "Walk On" that Jerry Lewis would sing at the end of his telethons?

Answer
Well first of all you don't have the correct song title.  The signature song Lewis sang at the conclusion of his telethon was "You'll Never Walk Alone."  Second, no one had a hit with that song in the 1970s.  The only version to hit the Billboard Hot 100 was released in 1964 and was recorded by Patti LaBelle and Her Blue Bells.  This was the same Patti Labelle that formed the group LaBelle and recorded "Lady Marmalade" in 1975.  No other version charted.

Hope that helps.
