When songwriter Berry Gordy decided to branch out into producing in the late 1950s, he also cultivated his own sound of pop-accented soul music. This seminal music form would soon become synonymous with the name of his second record label, Motown, a nod to Gordy’s motor-centric hometown of Detroit. Today, this influential genre is given new life by veteran crooners Leon Franklin, Charles Franklin, Douglas Gaddy, and Kim Green, the last of whom belted out hits such as “Do You Love Me (Now That I Can Dance)” with celebrated Motown band The Contours. Known collectively as The Motown Experience, the foursome wrap their soulful pipes around classic Christmas tunes, enrapturing audiences with their quick-footed choreography and seamless harmonies.
