LIVE! Music includes benefit for Ocie Fisher, memorial for Mike Hanna

Rachel Fields of Brick Fields recently announced on Facebook a benefit show for local musician Ocie Fisher.

“Ocie has been blessing Arkansas with her voice through gospel, blues, jazz and R&B music for over 50 years. She puts her heart and soul into each performance. She has given her talents to the community in efforts to educate children, benefit the less fortunate and stand up for change. Those who know her on and off stage love her,” Fields writes.

Fisher suffered a stroke in November and is recovering.

The benefit show is scheduled for 1 p.m. Feb. 26 at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville. Performing at the show will be The Ocie Fisher Band with special guests, Divas on Fire and St. James Gospel Tribute. In the meantime, Fields is seeking items for a silent auction and volunteers for the event. For more information, text Fields at 479-225-4831 or email her at
