Американская звукозаписывающая компания @classicmotown , с которой много лет сотрудничали @thejacksons и @michaeljackson (сольно) и стали частью ее истории, не пригласила группу и не упоминает MJ в программе к своему 60-летию. Также среди участников не оказалось и @lionelrichie Лайонела Ричи (его жена Бренда @brendahrichie сейчас рьяно отстаивает имя Майкла на фоне LN). В официальном Twitter компании сообщается, что выступят такие звезды как @dianaross Дайана Росс, @steviewonderlegacy Стиви Уандер - те, с кем много лет дружил и сотрудничал Майкл, а также @johnlegend Джон Ледженд и @smokeyrobinson Смоки Робинсон.
В комментариях поклонники MJ пристыдили организаторов #Motown60 , напомнив, в том числе, и про легендарный вечер Motown 25. Тогда Майкл Джексон выступил с премьерой Billie Jean и впервые показал «лунную походку». Это шоу посмотрели почти 50 млн зрителей, позже оно было номинировано на Эмми @recordingacademy.
Стоит отметить, что Берри Горди, с которым работали Джексоны, ушел, компания была перепродана и сейчас принадлежит @universalmusicgroup, входящей во французский медиахолдинг Vivendi SA. В настоящее время из той плеяды звезд с Motown работает Только Стиви Уандер.
Easter on the East with the fam💖. Bought my second flip in this neighborhood 3 years ago right outside of Indian Village and land contracted it to my aunt because she liked it so much! Now she has a beautiful home with tons of equity because the market has grown since. Real Estate is not only where you live it provides opportunity🏡🙌🏾

Beth started taking class at R+R 4 years ago as an avid yogi who had never taken a spin class (and didn’t think she had any interest). She was finally convinced to try spin and was hooked ever since! 2 years ago she started working at the front desk as our 5:30am gal and 2 months ago she TAUGHT her first spin class! 🚴♀️
“If you told me I would be teaching spin at age 53 I would have never believed it. I’ve exercised my whole life but never feel better than working out at R+R. Best shape of my life.”
Bei EUER SOUND - EURE BÜHNE treten am 8. Juni Hamburgs Newcomer auf. Freut euch auf
Der Sound von Daniel Abozen und seiner Band ist irgendwo zwischen Motown und dem hiphop-lastigen R&B der 90er Jahre einzuordnen. Und das alles auf Deutsch. Tiefgründige Texte treffen auf groovige Rhythmen und urbane Beats. Musik zum Mittanzen, Mitdenken, Mitfühlen.
Um 15 Uhr steht Daniel Abozen auf der Bühne am altonale Festivalzentrum. Kommt auf jeden Fall vorbei!

⁉️A little, BIG something I got to sing to one of my favourite artists backstage. YES I serenaded #dukefakir of #thefourtops One of the biggest selling #Motown artists of all time with one of his own songs❗
Thank you @dukefakir Jr for welcoming me into your world & producing our first release 'Who'd A Thought'. Ps. Duke you've never seen this 🙊🙉🙈 sorry for the delay I kept this as it means the world but it truly is too good not to share with you all. My heart & head exploding. ❤💯 #KINGSITSCOMING
This playlist could not truly live up to its title without a Motown track. For me the sound of Motown is truly the music of my soul, because it was my true introduction to music. Before I came into this world my father constantly kept Motown records playing, as this was the soundtrack to his childhood; so naturally it became the soundtrack to mine. There are truly an unlimited number of Motown songs that could fall on this list, and rest assured there will be more in the future! However, I wanted to select a track that is an essential feel good record that encompasses that true Motown sound! It’s the Same Old Song by the Four Tops was written and produced by the legendary Motown production team Holland-Dozier-Holland, also know as HDH. During their tenure at Motown from 1962 to 1967, HDH were responsible for the majority of The Four Tops and Supremes top hits! Alone, HDH wrote and arranged 10 out of the 12 US No.1 singles for the Supremes. Ultimately, they would write and produce scores of songs for other Motown artists, including 25 number 1 hit singles!

Detroit's finest @bigsean and @icewear_vezzo team up for a new offering of the surreal for their single #Balance , directed by Kid Art. The two D-Town superstars play with visual motifs of balance, whether it means walking on a tightrope comprised of a diamond cuban link chain stretched across the city, performing in front of 4 purple Ferraris balancing on-top of one another, or playing Jenga with stacks of hundreds that could rival the Joker’s haul in 'The Dark Knight'.

What’s Going On (serie Helden- 02) 1/1
Number 2 from the series Helden/Heroes. This serie contains manipulated photographs of my personal heroes. Number one was David Bowie, nr 2 is titled What’s Going On, featuring Marvin Gaye.
This series is a hommage to them that inspired, motivated and touched me and by doing so made a valuable contribution to my ‘being' #art
