Tribute CD for former WKU Standout

By Amy Bingham | 

A CD of gospel songs is on sale now to honor a former WKU basketball standout whose life was cut short earlier this year.

Clarence Martin died suddenly last March at his home in Atlanta. Martin played basketball at Western Kentucky University in the mid-80s, then went on to play professionally in Japan.

A group of his friends who sang at Martin's funeral decided to record a tribute album in his honor. The CD called "It Is Well With My Soul" is on sale for $16. All the money raised will go toward a college fund for Martin's two daughters.

You can purchase it at all branches of Citizen's First Bank, American Bank and Trust, Monticello Banking Co., Kentucky Trust Bank, Dixie Cream Doughnut Shop, The Liberty Group and Springhill Pharmacy. Order forms are also available online at
