Berry Gordy’s got to be proud of how the Motown brand continues to curate the best of the best. Torchbears Sebastian Kole, La’Porsha Renae, and Kevin Ross delivered incredible sets Tuesday night at Capitol Studios in Hollywood during The New Definition of Soul event hosted by their talented labelmate Mila J.
The Museum of Light was blessed to host exclusive pre-show interviews with the acts on Motown’sFacebook page. The artists discussed carrying on the label’s legacy, gave updates on their new projects, and even talked alchemy.
Kevin Ross opened at the piano with “Be Great” and brought even more inspiration with “Dream” and segued into Phil Collin’s “In the Air.” The trio closed the show with something really cool -- a rendition of Stevie Wonder’s timeless Motown classic, “Love’s In Need of Love Today.”
Motown let it’s Light shine last night. We were glad to be in the house.
The Museum of Light is curated by:
Billy Johnson Jr., Joslyn Rose Lyons, Adell Henderson, Rafael Casal, Matt Smith, Malik Buie.
