Motown: Music That Moved the World
February 1, 2020
In Detroit in the 1960’s Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles! It was the “Sound of Young America” sung by performers like The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. Using audio and visual content we’ll trace the amazing musical journey from the power soul of “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” to the psychedelic soul of “Cloud Nine” and “What’s Going On” to the pop soul of The Jackson 5. Join Gary Wenstrup on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 2 p.m. at the Whiting Public Library for this musical tribute to Motown.
