Now Here This: The Karaoke Singer

May 27, 2016

Rhode Island Public Radio is starting a new series in partnership with Now Here This, a storytelling group at Brown University. On the last Friday of each month we’ll bring you a new story.

Today, we meet a woman from North Providence who raised seven kids, overcame alcoholism, and became a regular on the Providence karaoke scene. Sophie McKibben from Now Here produced the story.
