The Thrasher-Horne honors soul legend Marvin Gaye with an intimate
performance of What’s Going On: The
Marvin Gaye Experience by renowned vocalist Brian Owens. As one of the
pioneers of Motown, singer-songwriter and producer Marvin Gaye helped shape the
sound of R&B music and is considered one of the greatest artists of all
time. Soul man Brian Owens is often referred to as the "second coming of
Marvin Gaye.” Owens, who has performed at the White House for First Lady
Michelle Obama, dazzles audiences with performances full of soul and love. His refined style combining classic soul with
a slight modern touch is why audiences everywhere are calling him the new voice
of American soul.
What’s Going On: The Marvin Gaye Experience, now in its third year, invites
audiences to partake in a show which combines both the beloved and lesser-known
hits of the legendary Marvin Gaye. Brian performs selections that span Gaye’s
music-making career, from early solo hits like “Can I Get a Witness” and “I
Heard It Through the Grapevine” to classic duets including “You’re All I Need to Get By” and the crowd-pleasers
“Let’s Get It On” and “Got To Give It Up.”
At its heart, Brian feels the show is “a
matter of upholding the tradition of true soul music that is so desperately
needed in our culture today.” The show prominently features a suite of
pieces from Gaye’s “What’s Going On”
album, which Brian counts as “one of the
most socially important artistic works in the history of American music.” Take a listen HERE and
experience a taste; then get your tickets before they RUN OUT!
