Gospel singer Michael Combs knows what it's like to struggle.  For years he battled his own demons with drugs and alcohol that nearly cost him his life in 1991.  But, in September of that year, he had a successful liver transplant and, having devoted his life to Jesus Christ a couple of years prior, set out on a Ministry of Music.  And, Friday, June 14th, that path will bring him to Owensboro, where he will perform at Bellevue Baptist Church and help raise money for the Lighthouse Recovery Series.

Leland Isbill Plays Harmonica at Owensboro’s Color Blast 5K [Video]

There were so many highlights at Owensboro's first-ever Color Blast 5K, it was really hard to count them all.  We had the awesome impromptu Harlem Shake video in which 4,000 people threw packets of color up in the air.  We had glorious weather and a record-breaking crowd join us at English Park for the biggest 5K in the history of Owensboro-Daviess County.  We raised tons of money for six different agencies serving individuals with developmental disabilities.  And we had some terrific performances on the Showmobile stage.  And one of those performances was delivered by Leland Isbill.  Watch this kid play the harmonica!  He will knock your socks off!

St. Wendel Third Graders Raise Money for St. Jude [Video]

Last Friday, I drove to Wadesville, IN to visit the 3rd grade class at St. Wendel Catholic School.  My friend Ryan Nowak teaches there and he asked me to come by and talk to his students about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  See, his students are doing a service project and, for it, chose to raise money for the patients of St. Jude.  I decided to share some of my favorite St. Jude stories with the students and introduce them to some of my favorite St. Jude families.  I knew this was a great way to show them the importance of what they're doing and how important raising money for the hospital truly is.  Well, guess what?  These 3rd grade rockstars got amped up and they went to the big Friday night fish fry with buckets in hand!
