“A Motown Christmas” starring the Motown Experience kicks off the Holiday Season with a family- oriented, sing-along holiday spectacular at the Rialto Square Theatre on Tuesday, December 14th @ 7:30 pm.

A Motown Christmas features a world-class vocal group assembled from past and present members of three of Motown’s most legendary groups: The Temptations, The Miracles and The Contours. A Motown Christmas is a powerful show combining Motown’s greatest hits with everyone’s favorite, holiday classics. The show features Motown’s trademark dazzling choreography, and unforgettable harmonies performed in that memorable, soulful Motown style.

Over the course of their career, the Temptations have released four Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles and 14 Billboard R&B number-one singles. Their material has earned them three Grammy Awards. Like its “sister” female group, the Supremes, the Temptations’ singer lineup has changed frequently over the years.*

The Miracles have charted over 50 Billboard hit singles between 1959 and 1978, including 26 Top Ten Billboard R&B Hits, with four R&B # 1’s. Sixteen of their songs reached the Top Twenty of the Billboard Hot 100, with seven songs reaching the Top Ten, and two, 1970’s “The Tears of A Clown” and 1975’s “Love Machine”, reaching number one, with a third song, “Shop Around”, reaching #1 on the Cash Box magazine Top 100 pop chart .*

In the 1960’s, The Contours charted eight hits, including Motown’s first million-seller and its fastest-rising hit of all time, “Do You Love Me.” In 1988, after the release of the movie, “Dirty Dancing”, starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, “Do You Love Me,” which was a featured song in the movie roared back on the charts, outselling its original performance many times over.
