Magic of Motown has now been seen by more than one million people worldwide and was recently featured in the Royal Variety Performance 2016. American record label Motown was formed when Berry Gordy Jr’s Tamla Records was incorporated as Motown Record Corporation in 1960 in Detroit, Michigan.
The record company was responsible for the Motown Sound, a style of soul music with a distinct pop influence, and during the 1960s, Motown achieved spectacular success for a small label.
The show will be at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax, on Friday, May 19 at 8pm. Tel: 01422 351158.
