The Shining Star Recording Studio opened in Olive Branch, Miss., in March. It is run by Richard and Delores Hunt and is near the Pizza Hut.
Up to eight people at a time can record together. Recording a single costs $20. Introductory two-hour recording sessions are $150.
Much of the music recorded in the studio has been gospel, but some others, including rap artists, have also used the studio. (But no obscene lyrics - they won't record them.)
