“Queen of Rockabilly” hosting benefit concert in Oklahoma City

An Oklahoma native, who is well-known for her rock and roll roots, is hosting a benefit concert for a good cause.

Wanda Jackson was born in the town of Maud before becoming the “Queen of Rockabilly.”

Her career spanned 60 years with performances with Elvis and Jack White of the White Stripes.

In 2009, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

While she has not hosted a solo concert in three years, Jackson will take the stage later this week.

She is hosting a benefit concert for the Shine Foundation, a community service program.

The concert is scheduled for Thursday, May 15 at the Green’s Country Club.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and Jackson will take the stage from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

A $10 donation to the foundation is requested at the door.
