The Milwaukee Children's Choir Hosts Special Concert with Motown Legends, The Four Tops

The Milwaukee Children’s Choir, Wisconsin’s premier, audition-based youth ensemble, will perform a special concert with legendary Motown music band and quartet, The Four Tops. This performance will blend together the youthful sounds of the children's choir with the ever beloved harmonic sounds of the Four Tops. The Four Tops is an American music band that made its debut in 1954. They are said to be pioneers in the creation of the recognized Motown sound. The group spent years singing jazz, soul music, R&B, disco, adult contemporary and even hard rock. Their first Motown success, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars.
