What inspires us, uplifts us, and brings beauty to our lives Read more >>

Singing accompanied by an instrument, acting in a drama, sitting around the hearth and telling stories, dancing to drums and flute, painting on a cave wall . . . all of these and more are a part of our heritage. In the past decades, we have added vaudeville, radio, tv, and movies to the list. These are pictures of what has entertained us and who has done the entertaining - famous and not. << Read less

This is an early photo of Mr Riley B. King (1925 - 2015) described as a blues singer, song writer, and guitarist - but better described as legend. B.B. King (his stage name) was born in Mississippi on a cotton plantation near the town of Itta Bena. His parents were sharecroppers. His recording career began with his first single in 1949. It took a couple of years for him to catch on, but when he did, a legend was born. He was married twice and had between 11 and 15 children. At the time of his death, on May 14th, 2015, he was living in Las Vegas. You could say "the thrill is gone" but his music and his guitar, Luciille, will be with us forever. Thank you, B.B!
