New Years Eve night I had the good fortune to find a rebroadcast of the February, 2011 White House Honors Motown. President Obama, cool as ever, and First Lady Michelle, looking gorgeous in all black, sat down with the Vice President, and the rest of the dignitaries to get their groove on.

Mr. Jamie Foxx, currently of D’Jango, “the D is silent”, fame served as host, and he performed the first musical tribute to the “tempting” Temptations, assisted by Seal, John Legend, and Nick Jonas.

Brenda Holloway’s career with Motown was another example of studio execs placing a talented star on the back burner while they developed the stars predicted to have the most crossover appeal. By the time The Supremes arrived Brenda Holloway was leaving.

Listen to this great music by a legend, and if you’re at work, don’t dance to hard in your chair.
