“Where did the time go?,” Dodson says. “We are on cloud nine. This morning we want to do something unprecedented. We send three kids to school every year to LeMoyne-Owen College (An HBCU in Memphis, TN).”We’ve been doing it for ten years. We want to ask that every entertainer to support one kid to the historically Black college of their choice. Bring that kid to our 50th anniversary show on December 4 and we want Tom, along with that entertainer, to present that scholarship to that kid on our stage.”

So, artists, celebrities, singers, please heed the call and if you are interested in participating, you can reach out to the Bar-Kays directly via their official site. We’re sure the BarKays would also be happy to host any TJMS listener who’d be in the position to offer a scholarship as well.

The Bar-Kays will be performing during “70’s and 80’s Night” on the cruise.

“We’re packed up and ready to go,” says Alexander. “It’s going to be a wonderful cruise. Your lineup is incredible this year.”
