Five great things that happened in Memphis this week

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - More jobs are coming to Memphis and friends are rallying around friends in need of support. While we're at it, the Grizzlies are winning and we've got a young blues prodigy making a name for himself around the world.

It was a great week for good news in and around Memphis.

Job fair

Bass Pro Shops set up shop to fill at least 600 jobs at the new store opening up in the Memphis Pyramid in May. Around 5,000 people showed up to the 3-day job fair to apply.

Sisters helping sisters

Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority sisters are on a Sista Strut, a benefit walk for breast cancer and show support for a sister with stage two invasive ductal carcinoma.

Markisha Williams credits her friends with lifting her spirits, calming her fears, while at the same time, bringing awareness to others and possibly saving lives in the process.

Hopes for a record

The boys in Beale Street blue are hoping to break the franchise record for most consecutive wins with a ninth over the Timberwolves Friday night and on the road.

Before they left, the Grizzlies (37-12) showed the Utah Jazz some heat beating them on their own turf 100-90.

M Club inductee

DeAngelo Williams, a Wynne, Arkansas graduate who played football at University of Memphis, will be inducted into the university's M Club on Friday night.

Welcome home, DeAngelo!

Blues prodigy

His name is Kingfish. Well, it's actually Christone Ingram. But, he's 15 years old and already playing guitar riffs like a blues legend. The son of a Clarksdale, Mississippi gospel singer picked up his first guitar when he was 3 years old. This week, the blues phenomenon returned from sharing his talents in France.
