Santa landed at the Pink Palace to open the Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees, benefiting Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Frank Chin was on hand to capture all the smiles, excitement, and gave us a inside look at the Enchanted Forest Festival of Trees.
What a memorable night was had by all this past Saturday. Whether you were live in attendance, or watching from home, V3Fights delivered another great night of action-packed MMA.

Meritan’s Silver Bells will once again, be brightening a homebound senior’s holiday. This Holiday Season, we want to remember some who seem to have been forgotten. Here in Memphis, we have a growing number of senior citizens who will be without gifts or visitors. We are hoping, with your help, to collect gifts or monetary donations to bring holiday cheer and smiles to our community’s frail and homebound seniors.
We continue this special week of Memphis Music celebration with a insiders view on “The Epitome of Soul Award”. Roby S. Williams takes us inside the “The Epitome of Soul Award” honoring R&B great Stevie Wonder.

It’s quite impressive if you think about it. The number of music icons who were born, raised or nurtured within the shadow of our river city. The saying goes that there are more inductees in the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame within 150 mile radius of Memphis than any other place in the world. The vitality of our region to popular music is same reason why the GRAMMY Museum is building its first satellite location in Cleveland, Mississippi. Understand there’s no shortage of music hall of fames in America. From Hawaii to Florida or Colorado to Michigan, there is a hall of fame for far too many states to count. Memphis however is one of the few cities on the list, joining the bustling metropolis of Buffalo to boast our music heritage. We should commend Buffalo for celebrating their music but it fails to compare to Memphis’s vast list of possible members.
