Jack White Saves Detroit Theater From Foreclosure
LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
And our last word in business today is showing his stripes.
Detroit's Masonic Temple Theatre was headed to foreclosure until an anonymous donor paid $142,000 in back taxes.
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
That donor is now revealed: former White Stripes singer Jack White. He has performed there nine times and hung out there as a kid. His mom was an usher. Now they're renaming the temple's theatre after him.
And that's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
