Why does Toyota Summer Concert Series ignore ex-Motown artists?
The Today show just announced their upcoming Toyota Concert Series for the summer season which begins 5/18 and features a performance each Friday by various artists. The line up for this season includes Usher, Justin Beaver, Chris Brown, Pitbull, Band Perry, Kenny Chesney, Maroon 5, Zae Brown Band, Hot Chelle Rae, Train, and Jason Mraz.
Totally disregarded are living legendary Motown artists. Why can't the series include Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Martha Reeves, Mary Wilson, Velvelettes, Jimmy Ruffin, Lionel Richie, Four Tops, Smokey Robinson?
Maybe we should sent letters to Melissa Lonner, Sr. Producer, NBC who is responsible for the Toyota Concert Series on the Today show.
