When I moved to Tuscaloosa almost 13 years ago I had no idea one of my favorite singers was from here.  I grow up listen to Dinah Washington.  Dinah, James Brown, Sam Cooke, and The Jackson Five were my favorites.

Tuscaloosa is honoring Dinah Washington August 29th 2013 with the grand opening of the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center.  Click here for complete details.
