Huey Calhoun – Caucasian M, 25-35. An idealist. A white man who loves black music, and is learning how to be a good ally to the artists who make that music. His mouth often works faster than his brain, which makes him the top DJ in Memphis, and gets him into trouble just about as often. Tenor, C3-B4. Pop/rock/R&B styles.

Felicia Farrell – African American F, 25-35. A gifted singer, passionate about music and longing to make her mark on the world. Against all better judgment, she falls for Huey, and tries everything she can to make their relationship work in Jim Crow Memphis. Mezzo-Soprano, G3-A5. High R&B belt.

Bobby – African American M, 25-40. A HUGE personality with a big heart, Bobby works as a janitor but has the soul of an entertainer. Needs great dance and comic skills. Bari-tenor, large vocal range, G3-C5. Great Gospel voice.
