Martha Reeves and the Vandellas at the TD Toronto Jazz Fest 2013
Martha Reeves is one funny Queen of Motown songs. Her natural ability to make her audience laugh without even trying hard endears her to the heart of music lovers. Her unique vocal range can raise the roof like a nightingale destined to sing great songs.
I’ve never known Martha Reeves before until last night. That’s a shame—compare to a group of high school students standing next to me—singing and dancing to her and Robinson’s music. How on earth those kids know the lyrics of literally every song they sang? They did it like they have never known hip hop, pop or electronic kinds of music! They know old school charm, eh?
Martha Reeves and the Vandellas hits songs include: Dancing in the Street, Jimmy Mack, Love is Like a Heat Wave and Nowhere to Run.
