Karla Burns is a native Wichitan and a Broadway star. She recently received an honorary doctorate from Wichita State University. Baritone Earnest Alexander sang with the Friends University Singing Quakers. He’s known for his annual benefit concerts in Wichita to help underprivileged children.
They both have sung all over the world and given concerts at Carnegie Hall.
Before producing their Christmas CD, A Christmas Celebration, Karla says she and Earnest had never sung together.
“But people told me, 'You need to do that,'" Karla says.
