Supporters of the Tulsa Global Alliance celebrated its 40 years of success during a social function and dinner at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame Aug. 18. 2016 Honorees are Roy Clark, Jim Halsey and Minisa Crumbo Halsey. Honorary Founding Chairs are Rodger and Judy Randle, Marcia Heronemus-Pate and Dick Williamson.

Roy Clark is known worldwide for his performances via TV, stage, and the world’s most famous music halls. Roy was a key artist and collaborator in the historic tours and considers the pioneering, sold-out 1976 tour a highlight of his career. Roy was able to communicate with the Soviet people through music and a grin as only he could do and instantly broke barriers.

Jim Halsey’s impact has truly been worldwide. From his Tulsa headquarters for the past 65 years, Halsey has made sure the world received ample supply of America’s most loved export: its musicians and their music.

Minisa Crumbo Halsey is a Native American artist and author well known for her work in multiple media. Minisa has also been a significant U.S. citizen ambassador in times of international change. She was widely recognized for her full-size portraits of Native American peoples in the first-ever Native American Art exhibition inside the in 1978 and was subsequently featured on the cover of the USSR’s Soviet Life magazine.

The 40th Anniversary party also included Asian fusion cuisine and entertainment including country music duo Alaska and Madi as well as “classic meets cool” pianist Barron Ryan.

Lead sponsors included Cherokee Nation Businesses, Public Service Company of Oklahoma, Tulsa Regional Chamber, Marcia Heronemus-Pate, Philip C. Lauinger, Jr., Resolute PR and Collins College of Business, The University of Tulsa.
