The 1960s and ’70s make a comeback at this year’s Concert Under the Stars as Cal State Fullerton celebrates the music and artists of Motown. Enjoy an evening of fireworks and the classic sounds of this groundbreaking record label, responsible for such legendary songs as “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “My Girl” and “Stop! In the Name of Love.”
Proceeds from the annual event fund scholarships and student programs.
Among this year’s featured alumni performers:
- Brooke Aston Harper ’02, who fronts the band The Honeydrops and played the role of Sylvia in a national tour of “All Shook Up”;
- Emily Mitchell Lindbeck ’00, whose performance credits include “Hairspray” on Broadway, Dionne in the international tour of “Hair,” Deena in “Dreamgirls,” and Armelia in “Ain’t Misbehavin’.”
- Calvin Seabrooks ’10, an actor and recording artist who has appeared in “The X Factor” and released his first EP last year. He also has appeared in music videos for artists, including Chris Brown and Karmin.
