Published: September 02 2016

Barrett Baber, NBC’s The Voice finalist, is the special guest at Evening of Hospitality, a scholarship fundraising event for Arkansas State University-Beebe on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. at the Red Apple Inn on Eden Isle.  

The fundraiser for scholarships will benefit students who attend ASU-Beebe at Heber Springs campus.


The event is $100 per person and includes a complimentary open bar from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., live and silent auctions, followed by dinner and presentations at 6:30 p.m.


Baber, from Marion, received inspiration for singing and creating music from frequent visits to Memphis. Beale Street and the corners of downtown Memphis were Baber’s first exposure to the street performers and artists steeped in Blues, R&B, Country and Rock.  As a finalist on NBC’s The Voice, judge Blake Shelton said “Barrett sounds like no one else on country radio. He can be a superstar in Country music.”


Corporate and group tables are also available for reservation. Seating is limited. Tickets must be reserved in advance. For tickets, contact Dr. Carol Johnson, associate vice chancellor of Development and Major Gifts, at (501) 730-1962.
