How about a Holiday Show this season that encompasses the soul of Motown music?
Yes, Motown ... the nickname for Detroit and the Motown sound.
Motown music is primarily known for style of soul music with a distinct pop influence.
Numeous 20th century artists lead with the Motown sound, including multi-platinum artists ranging from the Miracles, Temptations, Four Tops and Supremes to Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Jackson 5, the Marvelettes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Lionel Rickie & the Commodores and many others.
Motown music is a state of mind, distinctive, upbeat and uplifting which brings together pop and soul, white and blank, old and young then and today.
You'll enjoy songs like The Jackson 5 version of "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town", the Stevie Wonder version of "Ave Maria", and The Supremes' version of "Joy to the World" ... and many others.
One reviewer wrote, "... even The Grinch himself would get the Christmas spirit!"
So, augment your season of department store santas, elves and candy canes with someting new and unique.
PS: You don't even need to have a chimney to enjoy the sounds of Motown at the Tyler Civic Theatre.
