Motown Mother’s Day With Martha And Mary

Twas the night before Mom’s Day
And people celebrating the eve
Were treated to the timeless music
Of Motown legends Wells and Reeves

On May 11, Mary Wilson of the Supremes and Martha Reeves And The Vandellas brought their spectacular back catalogs (more than 50 top-40 between the two of them) to the St. George Theatre in Staten Island. “You Can’t Hurry Love.” “Dancing In The Street.” “Stop! In The Name Of Love.” “Heat Wave.” “Baby Love.” “Jimmy Mack.” “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski came and got these memories.
