A Motown Christmas Holiday Spectacular on the Embassy Theatre Stage this December
Fort Wayne, Ind. (July 12, 2022) – A Motown Christmas presented by BPE Productions will be at the Embassy Theatre on Monday, December 5 at 7:30 p.m. This show features a world-class vocal group comprised of past and present members of Motown’s most legendary groups: The Temptations, The Miracles, and The Contours. Member pre-sale will begin Wednesday, July 13 at 10 a.m.; tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, July 15 at 10 a.m.
A Motown Christmas is a powerful show combining Motown’s greatest hits with everyone’s favorite holiday classics. The show features Motown’s trademark dazzling choreography and unforgettable harmonies performed in that memorable, soulful Motown style.
Over the course of their career The Temptations have released four Billboard Hot 100 number-one singles and 14 Billboard R&B number-one singles. Their material has earned them three Grammy Awards. Like its ‘sister’ female group, The Supremes, The Temptations’ singer lineup has changed frequently over the years.
The Miracles have charted over 50 Billboard hit singles between 1959 and 1978 including 26 Top Ten Billboard R&B Hits along with four R&B #1s. Sixteen of their songs reached the Top Twenty of the Billboard Hot 100 with seven songs reaching the Top Ten. Two of their hits –1970’s “The Tears of A Clown” and 1975’s “Love Machine” – reached number one with a third song, “Shop Around,” reaching #1 on the Cash Box magazine Top 100 pop chart.
In the 1960s, The Contours charted eight hits including Motown’s first million-seller and its fastest-rising hit of all time, “Do You Love Me.” In 1988, after the release of the movie Dirty Dancing (starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey), “Do You Love Me” – a featured song in the movie – roared back on the charts outselling its original performance many times over.
This is an evening not to be missed. The Embassy encourages the community to bring the family, dance, sing and enjoy this special holiday spectacular.
