MARTINA A STAR IN THE CLASSROOM, TOO

Martina McBride is not only a source of interest to her fans - now she's the subject of a college course. Students at Salem College, a women's college in Winston-Salem, NC, now have the opportunity to sign up for a class called "Happy Girl/Broken Wing: Martina McBride as Text." The class, which is being taught by English professor Dr. Ron DePeter, will study Martina's performances, both on albums and in videos, focusing primarily on her Greatest Hits and Martina albums. Dr. DePeter says by analyzing her music, he hopes to help students understand how Martina uses her voice to "convey a woman's experience artfully and in its entire dimension, from heartbreak to gratitude, from personal fulfillment to social and political commitment." The course runs through Jan. 28 and meets for three hours, four times a week.
