Kentucky Wesleyan Singer Nadia Wilkes Featured in WBKR’s Denim & Diamonds Concert [Video]

Denim & Diamonds, our annual concert fundraiser for St. Jude, is coming up Friday, January 30th at Theatre Workshop's Empress Theatre in downtown Owensboro.  And I am personally thrilled this young lady is joining us.  Oddly enough, I first heard Nadia Wilkes singing at the KWC tennis courts.  Lol!  Not lying.  My friend Craig and I were playing tennis and, all of a sudden, we heard this voice just booming from across the parking lot.  Turns out, it was Nadia and she was ripping the song "I Am Changing (from Dreamgirls) a new one.  I literally chased her across part of KWC's campus and invited her to be a part of this year's show.  Here's a sneak preview of what you can except.  This girl can sing her face off.

Teenagers Steal the Night at The 2014 Battle for the Big O Finale [Video]

You have likely heard by now that The Josh Merritt Band were crowned the champions of the The Battle for the Big O on Saturday night at Diamond Lake's Good Time Theatre.  And they were INCREDIBLE!!  But a trio of teenagers gave the group (and everyone else) a huge run for their money.  They told the crowd they actually had to Google "old country" to find some songs that may be appropriate for this year's Liquid Ninja Big O Music Fest.  And, by their performance of Patsy Cline's "Walking After Midnight", I think they may have found just the right one.  WATCH!

WBKR Battle for the Big O Finalist #9: Kennedy McCollam & Riley Roth [Video]

The auditions are in the books and the playing field is set!  And the 2014 Battle for the Big O finale  will feature twelve of the best acts our annual talent search has ever attracted.  We have $1,000 up for grabs and the chance to open the 2014 Liquid Ninja Big O Music Fest.  And this young lady from Owensboro is one of our youngest finalists ever and she is proof that patience and hard work pay off.  Kennedy McCollam auditioned at two of our Battle auditions and was passed over by the judges.  But, at Beaver Dam Park in Ohio County, Kennedy showed up with guitarist Riley Roth and the two blasted their way into the finale.  Check out the rendition of "Black Horse and a Cherry Tree" that earned them a spot!
