REVIEW | ‘A Motown Christmas’ Cary Arts Center in @TownofCary 12/28-12/30/18 #CaryNC #FamilyFun

🎶 Candles burnin’ low

Lots of mistletoe

Lots of snow and ice

Everywhere we go
Choirs singin’ carols
Right outside my door

All these things and more
(All these things and more)
Whoa, that’s what Christmas means to me my love 🎶

In my home, Christmas just ain’t Christmas until we start playing ‘A Motown Christmas’ cd, which is a compilation album featuring christmas music sung by some of the greatest artists to ever come out of Motown. The album came out in 1973 (the year I was born) and its music can still be heard and enjoyed today during the holidays. The lyrics above are from Stevie Wonder’s ‘What Christmas Means To Meis one of my favorites! In fact, the whole album is a family favorite. That’s why when I learned that ‘A Motown Christmas‘, a musical review presented by Li V Mahob Productions and the Town of Cary, was coming to the Cary Arts Center I had to make plans to see it! I even hosted a giveaway for 1 winner & guest to enjoy opening night on Friday 12/28 at 8pm.

I went to the Saturday 12/29 3pm show with my husband, our daughter and my mother, who came from out of town to see this show! We thought it was FANTASTIC! Their renditions of so many Motown classics were incredibly good. The groups were paired to best utilize their vocal similiarities to the originals. There was plenty of hand clapping and foot stomping to go along with superb storytelling. We got a bit of history lesson to start the show of how this production came to be along with the humble beginnings of Motown. There was no better combination than the festive Motown Sound and the gospel of love. The whole family can celebrate the joys of the holidays at this exciting, family fun musical event.

Motown music is cross generational bringing joy and wonderful memories. Christmas time with a Motown influence uplifts us all! Nate Jacobs’ A Motown Christmas is a great way to say goodbye to the holidays and hello to the New Year. I definitely think this is a show worth seeing with the whole family!

    I attended the show Saturday, and to my surprise, this was not a play…It was actually a musical concert taking me back down memory lane!…A great venue where all seats are good seats!…I thoroughly enjoyed the entire production and hope this can become a family tradition at Christmastime!

      Hey fellow Motown Girl! This was absolutely a treat for any Motown fan. Not only did they perform Christmas songs but also the top hits from the 60s. Did you know the Isley Bros were on Motown and had a Christmas compilation album?

    • SobeSavvy says:

      It was so much fun singing not only their hits from the 60s but also holiday classics. The cast added their own twists to it here and there. It was very entertaining!
