Mosaic Singsation!

Friday, March 01, 2013 – Sunday, March 03, 2013

Since its inception, funk & soul music has told stories of love, life and  rhythm, and has been a big part of the musical history of Detroit. On March 1 through 3, the young artists of Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit will honor some of soul & funk music’s most iconic figures with Singsation! Mosaic Singers in Concert presented by Pepsi. 

 

"In Singsation!, Mosaic singers captures the heart of the city and keeps the feeling of funk and soul music alive," said Mosaic Founder Rick Sperling. "Our righteous choral concerts will celebrate rich culture across various platforms of combined voices and will pay tribute to the 100th anniversary of freedom songs from the southern civil rights movement. With tight harmonies, passionate delivery, fabulous dance moves and a live band, Mosaic will spotlight history with renditions of music written by Allee Willis who wrote great songs for Earth, Wind and Fire and the Queen of Soul, Detroit native, Aretha Franklin."
