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.

St. Jude Patient Update: Markell [Video]

Our next St. Jude Radiothon is coming up in March of 2015, but, over the last couple of weeks, we have been getting some updates on some of our patients.  In 2014, Jaclyn and I introduced you to Markell.  Known around St. Jude as "Mr. Hollywood," Markell is a 15-year-old cancer warrior.  Suffering relapse after relapse, Markell has been in the fight of his life repeatedly.  In fact, it's his fight that inspired our 2014 St. Jude song "Undefeated."  Though it's tried repeatedly, cancer has not been able to keep this young fighter down.  And, now, Markell is the subject of Unstoppable, a four-part series profiling St. Jude patients and their unwillingness to surrender.  Watch this.  Markell's spirit will uplift and inspire you!

St. Jude Patient Update: Ella Dreamer [Video]

If you have ever tuned into the WBKR/Poole's Pharmacy Care St. Jude Radiothon, you are very familiar with the name Ella Dreamer.  A couple of years ago, Jaclyn and I introduced you to Ella and her mother Jeanna and we revisit and update their story each year.  In fact, the two were the inspiration behind our original St. Jude song "Dreamer."  Since 2010, Ella has been battling a rare cancer called Adrenalcortical Carcinoma and has been declared terminal.  But you won't believe the latest news!  There has been a miraculous and unexplained development.
