Inspire Hope, Creativity and Greatness 

From the cotton fields, street corners and juke joints of the Mississippi Delta came a new kind of music – the blues. Considered by many to be the only truly indigenous American music, this form that has influenced musicians worldwide is deeply rooted in Delta soil. And so is the man who helped spread the blues as its foremost ambassador... Riley B.B. King.

Welcome to the story of B.B. King.
