Valentine's Quartet singing live on Sunrise

Happy Friday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*It's Valentine's Day and that means the return of a tradition here on Sunrise!  A Valentine's Quartet will sing live on Sunrise and tell you how you can send a singing Valentine to your loved one.

*Cancer patients in Lake Charles will be getting a special delivery this morning.  We'll tell you about the "I Heart" project started by an S.J. Welsh Middle School student that will brighten the day for those undergoing cancer treatments.

*A Lake Charles dental office is offering free dental work today.  If you are unemployed or uninsured, find out how you can get a free cleaning, extraction or filling.

*The Obama administration says another 1.1 million Americans signed up for health insurance through online exchanges in January.  What's making it easier?  We'll get that answer and tell you about the deadline if you still need to enroll.

*Ben Terry tells us the weather will be great this weekend.  If you're looking for something to do, we'll tell you about a blood drive, a half-marathon and art exhibit openings.

*The fall-out continues this morning after an incident between a Sulphur teacher and a student that is caught on camera.  We'll hear from both sides.

*The search continues this morning for a missing Beauregard Parish inmate.  See the picture of 21-year-old Robert Bebee, Jr. and hear where he was last seen.

Make it a Sunrise day!
