Does hearing The Temptations sing “My Girl” get you in a romantic mood? How about Barry White with “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe?”
Do you find it hard not to get up and dance when you hear The Four Tops perform “It’s the Same Old Song,” James Brown do “I Feel Good” or Tina Turner belt out “Proud Mary?”
If the answer is yes, you will want to be at the Phenix City Amphitheater Saturday night.
Those artists will not be on the stage by the Chattahoochee River, but the next best thing will be performing.
Never miss a local story.
Masters of Soul is a celebration of the legendary songs and performers that defined Motown and soul music.
The show is at 8 p.m. and admission is $10.
It is not only a stroll down memory lane, but it also gives the younger generation an opportunity to experience an era in this country’s history that produced many of the greatest music acts ever recorded.
Rebecca Harris is Phenix City special events coordinator.
It will be the second appearance for the musical act here and Harris said after the first she received many requests to bring Masters of Soul back. And Phenix City Parks and Recreation is doing just that.
“It is a really cool show,” Harris said.
Masters of Soul, a 10-person cast, sounds like legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, and Diana Ross & the Supremes. And they look like them as well.
“The sound, the outfits, the choreography is all there,” Harris said.
So, if you love songs such as “Bad Girls,” “Respect” and “Love Train,” then you will not to miss this show.
