Velvelettes at Diana Ross concert.....

My partner and I were waiting in the atrium last evening waiting for the house to open when I noticed a lady that walked by looked very familiar. I said I'm sure that was a Velvelette! I walked over where she was waiting for the elevator and asked, "Are you a Velvelette?", just as I looked to my right and saw I was standing in front of Cal!! :)

Bertha and Cal were extremely gracious ladies. They chatted with us for probably 10 minutes before heading up to their seats. Cal showed me a picture of her handsome grandson, just like we were old friends catching up on life.

We waited for them after the show and they said they enjoyed it very much. The lady they were with said she told the people around them they were seated with Motown royalty, and they certainly were!! I felt very privileged to meet them and made a great memory, as they are the first I've personally met from the Motown family.
Thank you Bertha and Cal for making the night even more memorable!

Our Motown Top 60

Hey everyone, keeping with Motown's 60th Anniversary I think it would be great if we post a favorite Motown recording here until we reach 60 of our favorites. If someone post one that you were thinking of posting, pick a different one (God knows there are a lot to choose from).
I will start things off with this one:

What's your thought on the Andantes replacing vocals on groups






They may be unsung, but they sure suckered us into buying a Four Tops, Martha and the Vandellas, Marvelettes, and worst of all *GASP* a Supremes record.


What's your thoughts on this? Should have this false advertising happened in Motown?

Louvain could give us some input if she's available.

Velvelettes LIVE! Last WeeK

These ladies are truly timeless. What a performance of their classic Needle in a Haystack last week at the Don Was Concert of Colours in Detroit.

Little Ann



Does anyone have any information on Little Ann?
This should have been in the non-Motown music...wouldn't let me delete? Sorry.
