    Levi's Last Peformance?

    I came across this recently

    I'm guessing that this has to be one of Levi's last public performances

    I've watched it several times

    It's equal measures heartbreaking, haunting, inspiring and beautiful

    That's from The Four Tops 50th Anniversary special in 2004. Mary Wilson and Paul Rodgers also performed on the show.

    I remember seeing this clip on this forum a few years back and it's (still) impossible to watch this without crying. Thanks for sharing Optimal Saint (and remembering the Mighty Levi Stubbs on the Anniversary of his passing).

    Aretha and Levi were two of my absolute favorites.

    This was his last public performance in 2004. Later that year he had the stroke and heart attack. A year later we lost Renaldo "Obie" Benson on July 1, 2005 the same day that Luther Vandross passed.

    Some had believed that this was Levi last time singing here:

    That performance was just as you described. Somehow Levi sounded better than many of today's "singers." Thank you for sharing. I hope I can find the entire special since I missed it.

    A DVD I watch over & over again, and I never fail to shed some tears! as this point, as other have said there was something special when Aretha & Levi were together, two very special & talented genuine people.

    That grew up in the same neighborhood and known each other since they were teenagers. Detroit was amazing.

    It was really clear to say, I can't remember the DVD were Aretha & Levi sang together in a a studio, that was special as well, add to that the track 'The Four of Us' just the Top so moving.

    You might be thinking of the Motown on Showtime special on The Tempts and Tops. Aretha and the Tops were gathered around a piano singing ROCK-A-BYE YOUR BABY, ISN'T SHE LOVELY, and I WANT TO BE WITH YOU.

    They also recorded some Christmas songs together.

    I just want to confirm that this is the correct dvd. There's only one left. From The Heart: The Four Tops - 50th Anniversary Concert, 2006

    Thanks!
