Denim and Diamonds, WBKR's annual concert fundraiser for St. Jude, is set.  Our 8th annual event is Friday, January 26th at 7pm at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre.  And this year's theme is exciting and different and promises to be moving and entertaining.  In previous years, we've presented themes like Country Meets Gospel.  One year's show was Denim and Diamonds: Acoustic!  This year, our theme is Country Meets Broadway and our line-up features a combination of local country singers and some of Theatre Workshop's best cabaret talent.  You're in for an incredible night of music and inspiring stories from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Check out our line-up!
