“Great Soul Performances,” we’ll take a look back at the artists we lost in 2014. People we loved and appreciated in every aspect of show business will be saluted. The list gets longer every year. I think you’ll find it touching, insightful and respectful. Also we’ll be hearing music from: Big Joe Turner, the Detroit Emeralds, Jimmy Castor, Earth, Wind & Fire, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles, Barbara Mason, Ray Charles, Johnnie Taylor, Peaches & Herb and others.
Tomorrow is “Father’s Day,” so this evening on “Great Soul Performances” we’ll play songs for “Dad” as well as pay a musical tribute to one of the greatest vocalists of all time, the late “Little” Jimmy Scott who passed away on Thursday. In addition you’ll hear: Major Harris, Joe Bataan, the Dells, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Michael Jackson from his “Xscape” CD, Minnie Riperton, Big Joe Turner, James Brown, Sly & the Family Stone and Stevie Wonder “live in concert” plus more.
