The Divas of Boise are a group of talented female singers/musicians started by Rocci Johnson in the mid-'90s to showcase their skills and lend a helping hand where they think it will be most beneficial.

On Thursday, Oct. 22, the nine women currently on the Diva roster—many of them mothers—will perform on the Humpin' Hannah's stage to raise funds to fight child abuse. Idaho icon Rosalie Sorrels will perform a solo performance and then the Divas will join her for the final set of the night.

Johnson said after the Robert Manwill case, more cases of child abuse began surfacing and she and her fellow femme fatales felt inspired to do something to help.

The 2009 Divas of Boise are Rocci Johnson, Kathy Miller, Dana Oland (yep, that Dana Oland), Kerry Rourke, Deb Sager, Rebecca Scott, Margaret Stigers, Sirah Storm and Mary Weaver.

The show runs from 7:30 to 10 p.m. and the cost to get in is $20, all of which benefits the WCA. For more information, call the WCA at 208-343-3688, ext 22.
