In Touch With Communities Around The World Presents: MOTOWN ‘N MIDTOWN. A celebration that commemorates America’s Soul Music that was made popular under the leadership of Motown Records’ Founder/CEO Berry Gordy Jr. and Business Partner, Smokey Robinson. These two gentlemen took their existing resources and contributed to America’s culture in ways that had not been done before. Gordy, Robinson, and their team gave hope, opportunity, inspiration, and love not only to the African American community, but to the world.
MOTOWN ‘N MIDTOWN will take its audience on a journey that tells the story of Berry Gordy Jr. leaving the assembly line at Ford Motors, to launch his own business that would later launch the careers of many greats, such as Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, Stevie Wonder, Temptations and many others.
The production is a state-of-the art production that is slated for November 29th & 30th, 2012. It is an opportunity for both seasoned and aspiring talent to showcase and celebrate major contributor to America’s Pop Music history.
