Willie Mitchell Public Memorial Today

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 10:44 AM

A public memorial "celebration" for Willie Mitchell, the famed bandleader and Hi Records producer who passed away last week at age 81, will be held at 2 p.m. today at Hope Presbyterian Church at 8500 Walnut Grove Road in East Memphis.

The latest word on the event is that soul legend Solomon Burke, among the final artists to work with Mitchell, may perform.

Andria Lisle pays tribute to Mitchell here.
