Would you like to help a great cause, and hear great music at the same time? You’ve got the chance to do just that next Saturday, as “The Miracles” perform a special concert at the Kirbo Center.

The Miracles is a nationally renowned choir of musically-gifted adults with intellectual disabilities, based out of Senatobia, Miss. They will be holding a concert at the Kirbo Center on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7 p.m., and tickets are $10 each.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Decatur County Special Olympics, which is a wonderful organization that puts on a variety of events each year. These events benefit our local citizens with intellectual disabilities, and include bowling events, a track-and-field competition and a “Snowflake Ball” prom-style dance night.
