Celebrating 60 Years With The Legendary Temptations

Sunday, July 26

Sunday on Soulsations, hear classic music from the Temptations.  The legendary male vocal group is celebrating 60 years in the music business. Otis Williams, the sole surviving member of the original Temptations, released the audiobook edition of his acclaimed autobiography Temptations in March 2020.  The group has plans to begin recording a new album in 2020 with brand new and original songs.

The group’s 60-year history spans both the 20th and 21st centuries and their music transcends generations. The Temptations’ story is a road map through American history. What began in Detroit, when a remarkable combination of soulful voices united, was the genesis of an epic journey that introduced multiple superstars to the world and produced some of the greatest music of our area. - www.temptationsofficial.com
