Welcome to this week's The411.  Rock icon Paul McCartney performed in Nashville but a Southern Indiana woman stole the show.   A couple of weeks ago Sarah Furlow went to McCartney’s concert in Nashville.  She held up a sign asking him to sign her tattoo.    You won’t believe what happened next.  McCartney actually called her to the stage and signed it.  Friends of Furlow say she felt like a star because everyone wanted to take photos of her. 

 And when you pick up this month’s issue of Ebony Magazine.  A recognizable face in the community is featured in the faith section.  Cathy Holloway Hill talks about her major career move so she could follow her dreams. Ebony has dedicated a full page story of the life coach and radio talk show host.  To read the article pick up a copy of the August edition of the magazine. 

Make sure you follow me throughout the week on WHAS11.com.   If you have an event send it to the411@whas11.com I'm Sherlene Shanklin with WHAS11 News.  

Let’s check out this week’s The 411 events and activities calendar.
