Motown Message: Revolution in Song 

When: Sun., April 3, 6-9 p.m. 2016
Phone: 313-598-0408
Price: $15 ADV - $20 DOS
Motown Message: a Revolution in Song is a unique cultural exploration. This historical concert event is presented by hip-hop artist Khary WAE Frazier. Vocalists Robert Palmer and Ralph Mitchell of the Floaters (1977’s #1 Hit Song “Float On”), will interpret a selection of songs that explore the relationship between the globally-beloved Motown sound and the radicalized cultural climate in which that sound came to be. Frazier will lead the band with his signature style of soul-infused hip-hop performance. “[Songs like] ‘Cloud Nine,’ ‘Past Time Paradise,’ and ‘Inner City Blues’ provided a voice for many Black Americans who felt voiceless.”
