‘The Motown Christmas Special’ will be led by former Drifters star Roy G Hemmings. Both critics and fans agree that Roy is a great showman and dynamic singer. Understood as the longest serving member of legendary group, the Drifters, Roy worked alongside former Johnny Moore for more than 12 years.
He has entertained audiences around the world with his easy, relaxed style and fabulous voice in a career that spans four decades, and includes appearances in several Royal Variety Shows and two performances at the White House. The hits and memories will just keep on coming as Roy G Hemmings takes to the stage!
For his previous shows, Roy has performed some of Motown’s greatest hits from the O’Jays, the Tramps, Billy Paul, Candi Staton, MFSB, the Stylistics, to mention but a few of those memorable Philly acts, together with the sounds of Detroit and old favourites such as the Four Tops, the Supremes, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Boyz II Men and of course the Drifters.
The show features the soul divas ‘Love Supremes’ adding a stunning dimension of smooth harmonies and Motown dance routines. Be prepared to sing along to such all-time greats as: Get Ready, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay, Me and Mrs Jones, Under the Boardwalk, Can’t Help Myself, My Girl, Dancing in the Street, It Takes Two, Save the Last Dance for Me and Love Train, in an evening of classic hits, together with some special additions of festive favourites. This is one Motown show you won’t wish to miss.
