Tune in today Thursday April 4th, 2013 from 8:30- 9:00 AM to see myself, Saycon Sengbloh and the exciting cast of Motown on Good Morning America! I’m looking for everyone’s support on this one! I’ll be singing and appearing as Martha Reeves singing Dancing in the Streets along with Brandon Victor Dixon as Berry Gordy! Also the cast will be featured along with Ryan Shaw as Stevie Wonder, and Jesse Nager, Donald Webber Jr., Ephraim Sykes, Julius Thomas III, Jawan Jackson appearing as the Temptations. Martha and the Vandellas are Nkenge, and Rebecca Covington! Check us out! Plus stay tuned for the Crowdfunding campaign for Howlin music!
Finally, finally, I can officially say that I am performing the role of Martha Reeves in Motown the Musical. Martha and the Vandellas are a superstar girl group of the Motown era. You may not know it but every time you sing “Heatwave” or “Dancing in the Streets” you are singing a Vandellas tune. This Atlanta girl, this College Park, Georgia native is pleased to represent Miss Reeves! I met her years ago in Detroit and look forward to meeting her again. We all have big shoes to fill playing these real life music heroes in Motown the Musical and speaking for myself I definitely don’t take this lightly. We had an invited rehearsal in the studio for press and reporters to come in and check out our process and see a few scenes from the show. I really can’t wait for the audience to see our show!
