Warm-hearted singer visits cold country


A warm-hearted country singer and song writer is on her way to take the chill out of a western Minnesota winter.

Michelle Murray, a Nashville, Tenn.- based recording artist, will be performing at venues ranging from Franny's in Starbuck tonight to the Prairie's Edge Casino near Granite Falls on Sunday.

The tour will serve as a fundraiser for Elizabeth Giese, a 35-year-old Benson woman with large medical bills from a severe kidney disease.
